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.

Winemaker's Notes

We were immediately struck by the bright aromatics of this wine. Dominated by aromas of lime, lemon, and floral notes and intensified by intriguing hints of wet pebble, snap pea and honeydew melon, this is a fruit driven yet complex style of Sauvignon Blanc. Lime and citrus flavors form the core of the palate, which is balanced by bright, lively acidity and a lasting impression of citrus with a flinty mineral finish. The quintessential summer apéritif, this wine also pairs beautifully with oysters, fresh chèvre and ceviche or just by itself.

Critical Acclaim

"Wow. What a nice white wine. It may have a little oak - the winery doesn't say- but it's basically stainless steel-fermented. which allows the Meyer lemon, lime, peach and papaya flavors to star. Brightened with crisp acidity, it's beautiful as cocktail sipper, and with shrimp cocktail, pot stickers, a nice roast chicken. Contains 2% Viognier. Editors' Choice. "
