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

Clean, crisp and refreshing! Aromatics of pear, honeysuckle and citrus translate to the palate where they unite with underlying flavors of key lime and floral tones. Balanced acidity ushers these flavors through to a lingering finish of summery citrus fruit and tender melons.

Critical Acclaim

"Here's a rich, easy-to-like Sauvignon Blanc. Shows keen acidity and complex flavors of citrus fruits, lemongrass, minerals and honey. Feels vigorous and clean all the way through to the long, spicy finish"
