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

Boutari Moschofilero (mo-sko-FEEL-ero) is a premium white wine made from 100% Moschofilero grapes grown in high elevation vineyards in the AOC region of Mantinia in the Peloponnese.

The wine is brilliant, crystal-clear, white-yellow color with green tints. A fresh wine with an intense floral and fruity bouquet dominated by aromas of white rose, melon and citrus. It is well-balanced and fresh, with intense flavor and long aromatic aftertaste (orange blossom, grapefruit).

Critical Acclaim

"A touch pink, this Moschofilero stands out for the juxtaposition of its delicate florality and stony, salty minerality. The combination is mouthwatering, firm without being weighty, bringing to mind an image of Mantinia's cool, stony moonscape with flowering peach trees. It will make an elegant companion to light white fish."
