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

While this is a slightly off-dry wine, it retains a bright, crisp acidity, and is perfectly matched to a wide array of foods. Aromatically this wine delivers lime, citrus, white flowers and ginger. The flavor profile is inviting sharing notes of citrus, lychee nut, green apple, mineral and light honey.

This wine pairs seamlessly with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, and is also the ideal sipping wine.

Critical Acclaim

"While this wine is clean and vibrant, it tastes off dry. With its honeyed finish and flavors of peach, nectarine and apricot jam, this is one of the most pleasant California Rieslings on the market. It’s easy to drink with ham, sausage and slightly sweet Asian fare. Editors' Choice."
