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 Treppchen Kabinett always stands out as a young wine, with its precocious red fruits and dense minerality from the red slate soil.

An elegant yet muscular wine, it makes an ideal aperitif, as well as an excellent partner for lighter seafood and poultry dishes. This wine benefits greatly from a few years in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm and delicate, this gives the sense of looking from the top of the rocky Treppchen hill, with the scent of herbs and wildflowers growing between sun-warmed stones. The wine’s ripe lemon fruit is enlivened by a breezy acidity, with a clarity and a hint of ginger spice that bring a pairing with sushi to mind. In fact, this will do justice to any dish that requires a light but firm hand."
