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 is Riesling is a refreshing white wine. Due to its individual slate stone notes, it is direct and complex at the same time. The aroma reminds one of citrus fruits and rhubarb. The taste is well-balanced in natural sweetness and acidity. The finish is acidity-driven and makes this Riesling easy to drink.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is a perfect match for spicy Asian cuisine. The acidity goes well with the spiciness of wasabi, so it works very well with sushi. Also try it with fried rice and vegetables.

Critical Acclaim

"This has a smoky allure, displaying ripe, concentrated pineapple, white chocolate and baked peach notes that are framed by a bright acidity and plenty of spice. The rich finish is powered by slate, with touches of sea salt. Drink now through 2024."
91 Points

"In a flight of five 2009 kabinetts from the Sonnenuhr, this was the most alcoholic (at 9.5% abv), but the extra weight didn’t stand out beyond a bit of extra creaminess on the palate. Hints of lees and slate add complexity to the apple and citrus notes, then linger elegantly on the finish."
