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 2009 Mitsuko's Vineyard Chardonnay is a wine of power and intensity, yet with refinement, grace and balance. Peach, nectarine and other stone fruit aromas marry with pear and New England apple notes, all complimented by hints of citrus zest and smoky oak, endowing the wine with great aromatic depth and intensity. A well balanced plush yet vibrant forepalate evolves in the mouth into lengthy and intense fruit flavors together with an opulent rich finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense and richly flavored, with a mix of ripe fig, honeydew melon and floral scents. Raw in texture, but should smooth out. Snappy, well-balanced and complex on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 11,800 cases made. "
