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

Our Castle Rock Pinot Gris is produced from grapes grown in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Sheltered by the Cascade Mountains, this area is on the same latitude as France's Burgundy region, and it saw the first introduction of this grape to the New World a quarter century ago. Since then it has gained international recognition as one of the most prestigious appellations for this cool climate varietal.

Our Pinot Gris is crisp and light with good texture and acidity, offering subtle floral aromas and delicate flavors of pear, peach, and apple. This versatile wine can be paired with many foods, but makes an especially fine accompaniment to fish, soups, vegetarian dishes and salads.

Critical Acclaim

"Leesy, almost biscuity in aroma, this wine has ripe and round flavors and a broad middle palate, with just enough aciditiy to shore up those flavors. Serve as an aperitif."
