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

The bright, crisp flavors of this Pinot gris are an inviting palate cleanser, pairing well with a light soup, or lightly spiced Thai dishes featuring shrimp or pork. It also works with richer fish, such as salmon and halibut. Its pear, apple and melon flavors also shine with a fruit and cheese platter, especially with almonds, hazelnuts and some interesting dried fruits as part of the mix.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and lively, this is deftly balanced to play its leesy, spicy melon flavors against citrus and delicate acidity. Drink now through 2012."
89 Points

"Bethel Heights' most recent collection is uniformly outstanding."
