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

This is a stellar bottling of Acero, with bright fruit in the nose reminiscent of key lime and tangerine harmonizing with mineral and floral notes. On the palate it is fresh and vibrant, with great balance, full flavors and a dry, long finish. It is easy to drink and perfect with foods like tapas and light dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"There's no oak on this beautiful Chardonnay, but it's so rich, you won't even notice. Enhanced with crisp acidity and minerality, it's potent in lime, citron, green apple, pear and honeysuckle flavors, with a vanilla sweetness."
92 Points

"Clean and sleek, with a trim beam of fresh apple, honeydew melon, citrus and Key lime flavors. Medium-bodied, ending with a lovely mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2016."

Good, but not a great Chard. Light, easy to drink but not a lot of linger. A great find at this price point !!

Amazing, bright and clean. Poured for a dinner at the winery and was a huge hit. No oak makes the fruit character stand out. Not a traditional Chard...you'll want to buy more than 1 bottle for sure
