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

Rich and complex, this Estate Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc shows exotic star fruit, papaya and tropical flavors with lychee and melon on a spicy, crisp mineral finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Luminesce Seven Hills Vineyard is composed of 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc Primary fermentation occurred in seasoned French oak with subsequent 30% malolactic fermentation and a total of 4 months barrel aging. It sports an inviting bouquet of melon, papaya, and tropical aromas leading to a round, smooth-textured, dry wine with mineral notes and pit fruit flavors emerging on the palate. This savory, spicy, well-balanced offering will drink nicely for another 2-3 years. "

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
