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

Bright aromas of citrus, sweet pineapple and cantaloupe greet the nose followed by fresh flavors of lemon, lime, Golden Delicious apple and pie crust on the palate. This crisp and juicy, medium-bodied Chardonnay delivers a full, rounded mouthfeel, balanced acidity and a creamy long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Silky and bright with tangy citrus and smooth texture; fresh, juicy and balanced with good length and style. "
