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

This Beerenauslese, exclusively from estate-owned vineyards, has a juicy mouthful of ripe fruits with a finish that is long and satisfying, but never heavy. It is perfect as an aperitif, with foie gras, or with light desserts featuring fresh fruits.

Critical Acclaim

"Gorgeous aromas of apricot, lime zest and freesia introduce this elegant dessert white. With its airy texture and weightlessness, it wears the sweetness and acidity effortlessly, with a very clean finish. Drink now through 2035. "
93 Points

"Made from an early picking of botrytized grapes from the Bernkasteler Lay vineyard, this is a sweet, plump wine, filled to the brim with lush tropical fruit flavors. The aromas show remarkably pure pear and pineapple scents, with just a touch of dried apricots but also a sense of slate-driven minerality. "

This is not a Fruit Wine. Clerks who cannot read should not be used to categorize wines. This is a German, late harvest Riesling from vines with the Noble Rot. This gives an incredibly concentrated set of fruit tones to the wine. It is, nonetheless, a riesling, made from the same grape from which every riesling is made. Fruit wine, what nonsense.
