Alcohol By Volume: 13.8%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
By nose, the 2010 Unoaked Chardonnay has minerality, green melon and mandarin orange. There is crisp minerality, green apple and mandarin orange flavors.
It's perfect for lunch; sandwiches and salads. A great sit out on the deck wine.
"You won't miss the presence of oak in this Chardonnay. It's brilliantly forward, ripe and savory, with orange, mango and lime flavors. Natural acidity and a creamy, leesy richness bring extra layers of appeal, and the finish is thoroughly dry."
Light & Crisp
Another great choice for an inexpensive white. Very light and fruity - good on a hot, humid day or with a pasta dish.
