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 wine shows a light golden hue in the glass with delicate aromas of pear, vanilla, and honey.  In the mouth, the wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced, as the acidity and a toasty mid-palate are in harmony with fresh fruit flavors.  The wine finishes gracefully and invites you back for more.   

  SERVING SUGGESTIONS The Isabel Mondavi Chardonnay is an ideal complement to a variety of dishes thanks to its lively acidity, layered fruit, and impeccable balance.  Pair with white meats, baked fish, and cheeses made from cow or goat milk.     

ABOUT US The Isabel Mondavi wines are made by Isabel's son, 4 th generation winemaker, Rob Mondavi Jr.  Crafted in a refined, lower alcohol style, the wines from Isabel Mondavi are intended to complement rather than compete with the meal.

Critical Acclaim

"A very pleasant Chardonnay that’s lifted above the ordinary by a brisk, dry minerality. Orange, lemon and pear fruit stars, with a suggestion of toast and complicated notes of anise, vanilla and cream. "

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
