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

Layers of freshness and vibrancy are offered up in the nose - green melon, jasmine, honeysuckle, just cut flowers and a whiff of wildflower honey. These flavors expand to include lime zest, peach blossom, passion fruit and star fruit on the palate. The texture is silky and delicate, but still compelling. Perfectly mouthwatering, this wine invites sip after sip.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautiful and compelling Sauvignon Blanc that gives the acidity and citrusy brightness you want in the variety, but contains extra layers of complexity. Offers waves of fresh green grass, Meyer lemon, sweet lime and mineral flavors that don’t appear to have any oak. Brilliant with crab cakes, toasted sourdough bread with goat cheese, or on its own as a cocktail sipper."
