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

Lively aromas and flavors of fresh apples and citrus lead to a hint of cassis and a touch of spiciness on the finish. Notes of exotic fruit and refreshing acidity, a hallmark of the Kamptal, make LOIS an ideal wine drinking experience anytime. 2009 celebrates the 10th vintage of LOIS.

An ideal apértif or the perfect pairing with fried chicken, sushi and spicy Asian cuisine, or fresh seafood and vegetables.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh, lively and delicious, this is nevertheless a serious wine at this price point, its brisk flavors of apple, lemon zest and sage leaf accented by a subtly complex minerality."
89 Points

"The lightest Grüner, crisp with fresh apple, it has just a touch of spice, focusing more on tightly clean fruit. A perfect apéritif style."
