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

The ultimate balance of intensity and lightness. The fruit is a little waxy with nice white flower notes and a dry, lingering melon finish– it's reminiscent of a lightweight wildflower honey.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Torrontes comes from Valle de Cafayate in Salta from ungrafted 40-year-old vines. It has another very expressive, almost Gewurztraminer-like bouquet of passion fruit, lychee and guava that is well-defined and effervescent. The palate is supremely well-balanced with crisp acidity, vibrant citrus lemon and orange zest that combine beautifully on the tense, sherbet finish. What a beautiful, life-affirming little Torrontes! Drink now-2017"

This white is intense on both the nose and the taste buds. Alcohol punch dominates, but it has an underlying bouquet that is pleasant and floral. It is rather sharp on the tongue but it has a soft, smooth linger. A nice balance, and pleasing dryness; however while I can appreciate this wine, I don't necessarily enjoy it. I wouldn't order a second glass if I had it out.
