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

2009 was an excellent vintage that featured light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. As a result, this Chardonnay offers depth, richness, distinctive spice notes and a smooth, creamy texture. Diamond Collection Chardonnay pairs well with Fettuccine Alfredo, orange chicken, and pork tenderloin with peaches.

Critical Acclaim

"Here's a nice, bright Chardonnay that can be described as Chablisian. It's bone dry and very bright in tangy acidity, with a squirt of lime juice over meyer lemons, pineapples, and green apples. A touch of oak adds just the right note of buttered toast. Easy to find, with 73,000 cases produced.
