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

Luminous, pale straw color with metallic highlights. Lively bouquet combining pears and mineral notes with a discreet depth of grapefruit. Well-integrated fruit flavors awaken the palate with their refreshing vivacity and persist in the mouth to give good length.

An ideal wine to relax with as a delicious aperitif or to accompany seafood, grilled fish and shellfish, rice and pasta dishes, etc. Also complements sushi and sashimi dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Cheers to one of Rioja's most basic yet consistent white wines. Minerally and crystalline on the nose, with dusty apple, melon and stony aromas, this Viura is fresh, dry and average in weight. It tastes of papaya and apple, finishing dry and clean. Best Buy."
87 Points

"Bright straw. Fresh citrus and orchard fruits on the nose and in the mouth. Clean and racy but modestly concentrated, finishing with firm bite and lingering tangy fruit."
87 Points

"This is viura fermented in stainless steel, retaining a fresh sting of acidity tightening around flavors of grilled pineapple. The wine has a touch of bitterness that will play well off any roast fish. Best Buy."

Style: Light & Crisp
An excellent white wine for the price. Very easy to drink and goes very well with Mexican, Spanish, or other spicy foods as it cuts through the spice and leaves a clean palate for the next bite.
