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

Aromas reminiscent of apricot, mango, passion fruit and flint. Lively and juicy with a vibrant, well balanced acidity resulting in a complex and lasting finish.

Pair with terrine of venison and goose liver with sauce Cumberland and butter brioche. Marinated tranche of salmon with Asian style rice noodle salad and wasabi sabayon.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and open-knit, hanging its peach, orange and slate flavors like a loose garment over the solid structure. It's juicy and moderately long. Drink now through 2018."
89 Points

"Apple, mint, and cherry in the nose of Molitor's 2007 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese feinherb lead to a palate that pits ripe cherry and apple fruit against a slightly bitter herbs and wet stone. This lacks the uncanny delicacy of the corresponding Klosterberg, but finishes with luscious persistence and well-integrated - indeed, practically virtually undetectable - sweetness."
