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

Bright straw with a green hue. Sweet, fragrant aromas of pear and grapefruit with underlying notes of toasted cashew and clove. A rich, layered palate of minerals and creamy cashew nuts, clove spice and pear skin add to the fine, long, citrus/stone-fruit palate.

Critical Acclaim

"A fine-boned and structured wine, with a pleasing savoury grip to the finish; in between, as it were, there are flavours of grapefruit, green apple and white peach on the long, even palate. "
94 Points

"Fresh scents of Marcona almonds and peach pit give this pale chardonnay a delicate profile. Mouthwatering acidity makes it a clean white to serve now with roast fish, or one to cellar for further flavor development."
