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

The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc has zesty aromas of lime, melon, guava and gooseberry. The wine's brilliant acidity enlivens the palate which is bursting with citrus and tropical fruit, as well as a wonderful minerality. Hints of fresh-cut grass balance this wine's well-integrated fruit and crisp, yet slightly viscous texture. Enjoy this wine with all types of seafood, your favorite Thai curry dishes or creamy goat cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"There’s no oak at all on this savory young Sauvignon Blanc, which delivers its richness directly to the palate, undiluted. Those flavors are of green fruits: melons, apples, limes and the slightly sour, flowery tang of gooseberries. Fine acidity makes it all brisk and mouthwatering. An outstanding Sauvignon Blanc for today’s ethnic fare, at a great price."
