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

Pale gold with green reflections. The nose is complex, dominated by citrus fruit notes such as lime. The onset in the mouth is rich and warm. The aromatic richness enhances the fruity notes, very ripe, slightly candied fruit. The finish offers a fine, straight acidity that gives a very beautiful length and minerality to the wine.

Critical Acclaim

"With a few years' aging, this is beginning to show its almond and toast side. The fresh acidity is now melding beautifully into a soft, ripe texture with layers of spice and acidity. Certainly worth aging further."
