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 2011 Sauvignon Blanc delivers punchy flavors of passionfruit, grapefruit and redcurrant. Texture is enhanced by some barrel ferment and our signature mineral finish is retained.

Critical Acclaim

"Framingham is one of New Zealand’s Riesling pioneers, but this shows the winery is serious about Sauvignon Blanc as well. There’s a smoky, struck-flint character on the nose, then layers of citrusy fruit on the palate. It’s medium bodied, with a long, grapefruity finish."
