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

Delicious salty, fresh and citric, it is a great aperitif and a wonderful match for langoustines and all types of shellfish as well as sea and river fish and fresh goats cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"From vines that have been growing in mica schist and gneiss for more than 45 years, this wine is tense and slightly bitter in 2012. There’s a scent of lanolin and a flavor of cranberry skins that seems undeveloped, the peppery, floral notes showing a zesty structure that will hold it as it evolves."
