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

A golden hue that glitters with the occasional green highlight. The scent of white fruits like pear and pineapple; a slightly toasty aftertaste. Its slight effervescence spreads evenly over the entire tongue. It has the texture of a mousse, and its mild acidity produces a very pleasant freshness. A sparkling wine: vivacious, intense and very elegant.
