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

A classic and very expressive Pinot Grigio, bright straw yellow in color with an attractive aroma of citrus fruits, peach, honeydew melon and especially pear; medium rich, fruity, well-structured and direct on the palate with orchard fruit flavours and tangy, fruity acidity on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Orange-blossom honey scents add to the white flower and white peach fragrance of this wine. It's fat on the palate with some spritz to keep it refreshing, a toasty pinot grigio to serve with roast John Dory.

More fruit and less citrus than many Pinot Grigios. Outstanding with seafood. First tried it at the innovative RM Restaurant, Las Vegas, as a wine pairing and loved it. Can't wait for the 2010.
