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 Alsatian Pinot Gris is very true to its style and terroir. Starting rich and full, its mouthfeel is quite opulent and round. One can detect a slightly smoky flavor with a touch of grass. It has a pleasant and long finish.

Pair with foie gras, grilled pork tenderloin, mussels, crab.

Critical Acclaim

"Creamy and aromatic, with white pepper and hints of mineral mixing with the honeysuckle, yellow peach, quince and mango notes. Juicy acidity and a pleasant grapefruit peel note provide balance. Delicious. Drink now through 2015. 10,000 cases made."
