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

Single vineyard, 100% Viognier - this beautiful wine was fermented in neutral French burgundy barrels. Suave and focused - think spice, asian pear, with a hint of wysteria blossoms. A long deep vein of crushed minerals take it all the way to an excellent, long finish. This is why you should be drinking Viognier!

Critical Acclaim

"Sourced from a portion of Den Hoed's Wallula vineyards high in caliche and hence active lime, K Vintners' 2011 Viognier was fermented in older barrique. Grapefruit, white peach and acacia in the nose persist on a palate luscious and subtly oily yet as brightly citric as virtually any wine from this grape that I can recall – for an effect as if it had been blended with Riesling. Cress, grapefruit peel, crushed stone and salt enhance the invigoration and saliva-inducement of a long and refreshing, if faintly bitter, finish. This won't only be a delight to drink over the next couple of years, I suspect it will be worth following for longer than that too, and may well achieve a seductive patina."
