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 forward aromas of lime, kiwi, peach, pear, guava, crushed sea shells and meringue follow straight through to the flavors. The first taste is fresh and citrusy followed by layers of peaches and cream. There's a beautiful minerality in the finish which lingers for quite some time.

Critical Acclaim

"A superb Sauvignon Blanc from the very perfumed, cool year of 2009, this wine (which has malolactic fermentation blocked) was aged in 95% stainless steel and a tiny bit in oak. It offers up superb melon and citrus blossom notes, with a steely/wet rock component in the background. Vibrant, zesty, and richly fruit, this is a real winner in this varietal category. This surprisingly intense Sauvignon should drink nicely for several years."
