  • 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 wine is lemon yellow in color with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine has a youthful quality. The nose is frank, pleasant and distinguished. It gives out a dominant of mature fruity scents, of citrus fruits, candied lemon, as well as a slightly floral hint. Airing remains on citrus fruits, delicately enhanced. The nose is marked by a good typicity, delicate and fresh, and the grapes display a beautiful maturity. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample. The alcoholic base is present; one evolves on a fresh and edgy medium. The range of flavors is marked by citrus fruits, candied lemon, lemon peel, and delicately spicy ginger. The finish offers a moderate length and a sharp vivacity.

The structure of this wine makes it a good companion for salads or pan fried scampi. To be served at a temperature of 54°F. Drink immediately or keep for 5 years.

This is a very good wine. Not outstanding, but for the price, very good. Pretty fruity and minerally on the nose, and very crisp on the palate. Didn't really work with the cornish hens with an apricot dijon mustard glaze -- too acidic for that sweet glaze. An Alsacian Gerwurztraminer would have been better, I think. But this one is nice with salads or maybe shellfish.
