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

Brilliant straw-color with greenish reflections. Intense and complex aromas. Fruity, tropical fruit, passion fruit and citrus aromas. Especially elegant and fresh. On the palate, it is equally fruity and fresh, structured and lingering with an elegant touch of bitterness at the end, charactertic of the Verdejo variety.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh, perky, sweaty and citric on the nose, which all creates a textbook bouquet. The palate is slightly spritzy, with flavors of passionfruit, pineapple and sweet white grapefruit. Fresh yet a little fleshy, with a long, zesty finish. Drink as soon as possible to capture the essence of a fine vintage. "
90 Points

"Green-tinged yellow. Slow-to-open aromas evoke lime zest, herbs and salty minerals. Very tight and mineral-dominated in the mouth, offering chewy citrus flavors and a hint of honeysuckle. Finishes with firm stony grip and a strong citrus quality. Give this a little air."
90 Points
