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

Attractive golden color with shimmering pale green highlights. Fragrant bouquet with notes of minerals that blend with a touch of grapefruit and mandarins. Lively in the mouth with fruit sensations taht reveal a fresh acidity. Very pleasant fullness and good length. To be enjoyed while young, although this wine will last longer due to its superb vivacity.

Perfect with any type of aperitif, this wine is an ideal partner for seafood and fish, as well as salads, rice dishes with fish, cottage cheese, etc.

Critical Acclaim

"This aromatic white offers an alluring mix of orange blossom, wild herb and seaside notes, with a silky texture and tangy acidity for grip. Ethereal yet racy, this is juicy and fresh."
90 Points

"Pale yellow. Intense orange and honeydew aromas are complemented by notes of sea salt and white flowers. Spicy and precise, with good heft to its citrus fruit and melon flavors. Closes with fine energy and cut, along with touches of mineral and orange pith. This is a project of Rioja's Marques de Caceres."

The nose on this is not pleasant.--seems to have a reduction issue. However, once you get past that, the wine is good--nice flavors, complexity. Hard to get past the flaw, personally.
