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 2008 Climber White is a unique blend of our favorite white varietals. Sauvignon Blanc sourced from Lake County, Lodi and Monterey makes up the backbone of the wine, with clean melon, citrus and gooseberry aromas. Muscat adds increased terpene floral aromas and richness in the mouth. Riesling adds tropical and jasmine aromas, while also giving the mouth good acidity. Chardonnay from Monterey adds a minerality and depth in the mid palate. The Chenin Blanc increases the purity and structure of the blend.

The wine is 100% stainless steel fermented and did not go through malolactic fermentation so the purity of the fruit could be enhanced. The result is classical varietal notes with a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.
