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%.

Critical Acclaim

"The Christoffel 2008 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese practically epitomizes the lift, finesse, and dynamic interplay of fruit, herb, and mineral elements that are this vintage at its best. Sassafras, orange liqueur, salted apple, and pungency of wood smoke on the nose presage a succulent, lushly-textured yet bright palate that both sooths and invigorates in its long, luscious finish. I would expect at least 20 years of delight and fascination from these bottles. "
93 Points

"A rich, juicy style, like biting into a perfectly ripe peach, with Golden Delicious apple and slate rounding out the flavors. Terrific harmony and length, with a refreshing finish. Drink now through 2027."
