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 color is a light golden yellow with light golden reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine has a fine youthful quality. The nose is marked, pleasant and expressive, and gives out a dominant of juvenile, primary, fruity scents; citrus fruits and very refreshing lemon peel. The frisky and refreshing nose is remarkable. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample with a well-balanced acid base. One evolves on a fresh and edgy medium marked by a light sparkling note. The range of flavors is focused on the dominant fruits, citrus fruits, lemon peel but also white flesh fruits. The finish offers a moderate length and a sharp vivacity. The wine shows a slender and lengthy character without losing the freshness of the grape variety.

Critical Acclaim

"This dry version exhibits pleasant notes of lemon zest and brine, with a warm, underlying hint of earthiness. Despite crisp acidity, this has nice weight and texture, making it great as a sipper or with shellfish. Drink now through 2011."

Learn About Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc(pee-no blahnk) Pretty and Simple A mutation of the Pinot family, Pinot Blanc was once commonly mistaken for Chardonnay - it looks quite similar on the vine.
