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

Ovid Line North Riesling is the only Riesling we make from a blend of multiple clones. Each year, we look to blend clones in a way to create a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. We harvest fruit for this wine throughout the season, between late September and late October. Some of us appreciate Ovid Line North Riesling for the complexity that comes from its varied components.

After the nuanced and quiet nose, flavors of juicy strawberry, mango and honeysuckle burst on the palate. Grey slate underscores the ripe strawberry flavors, while a backbone of acidity contributes to an impression of the seashore.

Critical Acclaim

"Whiffs of herbs and green florals persist from start to finish on this elegant off-dry Reisling. The palate is lush with ripe white peach flavor, but blossomy and bright with a streak of lemon-lime acidity. Finishes long with a delicately lacy sweetness."
