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

Pale gold with green-gold highlights, its rich aromas of beeswax, lavender, quince and cardamom lead to a mouthful of Asian pear, quince, and wild fennel with a distinctive note of minerals on the mid-palate. Silky in texture and perfectly balanced with a long, savory, satisfying finish.

Its unique flavors will pair exceptionally well with fresh cheeses, seafood, roasted poultry, and savory vegetarian strudels or gratins.

Critical Acclaim

"Green-tinged gold. Poached pear, melon and honey on the nose, with anise and bay leaf nuances adding complexity. Deep, chewy and broad, offering spice-accented orchard and pit fruit flavors sharpened by a bitter lemon pith nuance. Finishes smooth and sweet, with a touch of musky bee pollen."
