  • 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

As the story goes, the chief hunter of the tribe wanted to hunt an enormous "Choke" (a native ostrich) that he saw in the mountain. Just as the animal was nearly captured, it escaped flying toward the stars. The chief through his "Boleadoras" weapon with all this strength, but it didn't reach the enormous bird. Instead it got trapped in teh sky with the Stars, becoming Choke stars. This is how the Afra and Centauri stars were formed, the trapped "Boleadoras" of the bravest Mocovi hunter.

Critical Acclaim

"This white features flint, sea salt and petrol hints to the fresh lemon-lime and gooseberry flavors that push through the butter-tinged, savory finish. Distinct. Drink now. 800 cases made. "
