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 color is a stunning golden yellow with silver hues. The nose has upfront flavors of white peaches with hints of freshly peeled almonds and white flowers. The palate is delicate and complex, its sweetness is balanced by good acidity and notes of ripe grapefruit, as well as intense fruity flavors, reminding of such exotic fruits as mango. At the right temperature, some mineral notes with a light smokiness enhance the complexity and elegance of the wine. The finish is clean, soft, long and fresh, leaving delicate tangerine flavors. Its soft sweetness makes it an interesting partner for very spicy food like Indian curry or Asian ginger styles.
