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

Pale straw gold in color, with ripe pear and bright honeydew melon aromas, and just a touch of vanilla. In the mouth it is full and round, with baked apple, fresh pineapple, and hints of rich lemon pie. The long clean finish begs for another sip.

Critical Acclaim

"Made from various vineyards scattered around this huge appellation, MacRostie’s ’09 Chardonnay offers brilliantly etched fruit brightened by crisp, coastal acidity. Strikes a nice balance between ripe pears and sweet, vanilla-scented oak."

Juicy and compelling; a nice balance between richer oak/vanilla and nice acidity. Great with food.
