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

97% Pinot Gris, 2% Chardonnay, 1% Viognier.

MacMurray Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Gris possesses an expressive fruit-forward character, exhibiting rich aromas of fig, white peach, and pear. The bright aromas and complex varietal characters of citrus and elements of spice add both weight and interest to the wine. The flavors of peach, spicy pear and citrus meld together in a rich core, resulting in a round mouth feel which complement its crisp, clean finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pinot Gris (primarily from the Sonoma Coast) exhibits lots of elegant, orange rind, apple and melon characteristics in its medium-bodied, crisp, flavorful, bone dry personality. Aged totally in stainless steel, this naked expression of Pinot Gris should be consumed over the next year."

Had the MacMurray Pinot Gris with our anniversary dinner the other evening and it suited both of our meals perfectly (Veal / Shrimp). This full white blend is such a nice diversion from a Chardonnay. A definite keeper (that's why I ordered 3 bottles).

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Pinot Gris/Grigio(PEE-noh gree/GREE-jee-oh) While Pinot Grigio is in fact the same grape as Pinot Gris (just the Italian take on it), the differences of wine they create can be immense.
