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

In order to conserve the wine's freshness and unique bouquet, Laurence and Gerard Vinet mature their wine on its lees and bottle it in the spring following the harvest. This wine is an ideal accompaniment to fish and seasfood dishes.
