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

You definitely know it when you find it, and once you find it you never forget it. Fetish "The V Spot" Viognier is the sort of wine that you'll want to find over and over again.

Viognier is a wine known for its floral aromas and is a versatile companion to food that is not traditionally wine-friendly. The highly aromatic and fruit forward nature of the grape allows Viognier to pair well with spicy foods such as Thai or Vietnamese cuisine. The subtle floral notes make it a perfect match for sushi and sashimi. Viognier also pairs well with many cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Viognier V Spot is light gold-colored with a nose of spring flowers, apricots, and white peach. On the palate it reveals a touch of oak, vibrant acidity, and racy flavors. Drink this outstanding value over the next two years. "

Slight darker visually, its underlying body is full and rich (for a white), the best viognier taste components are each distinct and collectively in balance. (Sorry about the lingo, been drinking wine for 50 years, never learned the language . . .)

I admit I prefer reds, and a smooth buttery flavor white, and this is clearly a more fruity, crisp wine. I really hated the extra tartness of this wine, which left an unpleasant after taste, like most of the house chardonnay's I've had at mid priced restaurants.

A rather acidic, non-dry wine that didn't impress anyone who drank it.
