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 2009 CADE Sauvignon Blanc is alive with vibrant, fresh acidity and perfectly balanced rich fruit characteristics. Wonderful aromas of spearmint, guava, kiwi, gooseberry and snow peas are followed on the palate with flavors of concentrated lemon/lime mix, fig and guava. The lees contact gives the wine a nice mouth feel and texture. We feel that the addition 26% fruit from our Estate vineyard in Oakville has lent a nice complexity and depth of flavors to this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Distinctive and aromatic, with piña colada, honeysuckle and peach blossom notes that leap out of the glass and give way to an equally impressive lineup of peach, nectarine, tangerine, marmalade and mango. Smooth, refreshing and juicy all the way through the finish. Drink now. 140 cases made."
