Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Our 2010 is definitive Courtney's Chardonnay. It possesses all of the attributes one would expect from low-yielding, cool-climate terroir. The aromatics range from lemon curd and baking spices to grilled almonds and wet stone. As expected, it delivers admirable weight and viscosity tempered by vibrant acidity.
The combination of power and structure make this a great candidate for a wide variety of foods.
"New oak (30 percent) and lees stirring lend a cushioned texture to this chardonnay without interrupting its gentle persistence. It’s a stylish, fresh white with a nutty edge that would match sunchoke ravioli."
