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

This is a lush and lively wine with an appealing soft rose colour and violet hints. Its bouquet develops intense aromas of delicate peony, raspberry, clementine and violet candy notes. The palate is smooth, round and well balanced with a lingering finish. Vibrant, crisp and dry, this rosé embodies the finesse style and spirit of the domaine. It's a taste of Mediterranean sunshine.

Critical Acclaim

"Spicy up front, with concentrated melon and dried berry flavors that are accented by plenty of savory notes. Features a fresh-cut apple note on the juicy, lively finish. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Drink now. 6,000 cases made."

It's okay. Nowhere near as smooth on the pallet as a nice Provencal rose but a good runner-up--especially if enjoyed at an adequately cool temperature.
