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

Sparkling, brilliant, straw gold. Very lively with good persistent mousse. The wine has notes of dried flowers, morello cherries and brioche. Fresh and light at first, then an explosion of mouthwatering flavours with white peaches and citrus notes in abundance. Very long, light, elegant finish.

Cries out to be enjoyed with seafood and fish, especially freshwater varieties in a light sauce. Wonderful also with a plate of oysters, or a selection of fresh goat's cheese... and would make any early summer picnic very special.

Critical Acclaim

"Refined in texture and elegant overall, with rich base notes of lemon pound cake and toasted almond paired with apricot, quince, ground ginger and a hint of dried papaya. Features a lightly smoky, vibrant finish."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
