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 Sauvignon Blanc has exceptional acidity, aromas and alcohol.

Critical Acclaim

"When O. Fournier tackles a new project, such as Sauvignon Blanc from Leyda, it doesn’t mess around. This is an excellent example of Chilean SB with green fruit, citrus and a light touch of capsicum. It’s a serious wine that challenges with its peppery crispness offset by grapefruit and green melon. Very nice mouthfeel; shows itself in a couple of waves. "
91 Points

"Bright gold. Wild, highly expressive bouquet evokes passion fruit, melon, nectarine and lemon gelato, along with suggestions of candied ginger and brioche. Exotic and deeply pitched, offering energetic pit and tropical fruit flavors and a touch of smokiness. Nicely combines richness and vivacity and finishes with outstanding length and lingering spiciness."
