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

Fragrant nose of apple, baking spice and orange. Fresh, zesty and shows wonderful purity to the fruit flavors. A great off-dry Riesling to serve as an aperitif or to pair with fork-tender pork cuts and light summer foods.

Critical Acclaim

"Gorgeous aromas of peach, pear, flower and spice highlight this wine right from the start. There is an exotic, floral flavor running alongside the tree fruits, and suggestions of mint and rosewater. Excellent length and balance, with just a hint of sweetness.
Best Buy. "
