Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This Chardonnay is fresh and clean, with tropical flavors of pineapple, coconut and lemon zest. It has great acid and a note of minerality throughout. Very well balanced and smoothly textured, it shows hints of French oak, graham crackers and vanilla.

Critical Acclaim

"A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2010 impresses for its breadth and sheer personality. Lemon peel, tangerine, white flowers and mint all add complexity in a Chardonnay that is bright and focused, but also wonderfully structured. This is a rare Edna Valley Chardonnay endowed with superb balance and tons of pure personality. The 2010 spent nine months in French oak barrels, 32% new."
91 Points

"This shows the bright acidity and pure fruit of Edna Valley, with laser-like orange, pineapple and mango fruit, touched with honey, butter and smoky oak. Very pure and focused, it’s a distinctive wine that smacks of its terroir. "
