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

Our 2011 Gallo Signature Series Chardonnay opens with aromas of sweet vanilla and freshly baked bread. A true expression of the Russian River Valley, this wine has delightfully bright flavors of crisp apple, lemon meringue and ginger on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Gallo’s Signature Series includes the 2011 Chardonnay, which comes primarily from their Laguna Ranch property. This 100% barrel-fermented Chardonnay was aged in 91% new French and American oak. As a result, the wine exhibits a spicy vanillin character intermixed with apricot marmalade, honeysuckle, white currant and quince notes. This attractive effort carries its 14.1% natural alcohol very well."
