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

Medium straw color. Lively nose with notes of lemon, pear, and golden fig. Bright on the palate, with plenty of citrus and some mineral flavors. Finishes with cleansing acidity.

Long ago a widely planted grape in Argentina, a number of old vine parcels of Semillon still exist. As an early ripener the grape is well suited to the region's cooler climates. This bottling comes from single vineyard in Perdriel which is a warmer subdistrict better known for its Malbec. The warm climate here offers up a "flashier" example of the grape. Stainless steel fermentation and aging keep things focused.

A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...

Learn About Semillon

Semillon (sem-eel-YHON) Moldy-Goldie An essential white grape of Bordeaux, Semillon is a golden-berried goddess, producing some of the longest-lasting white wines ever made. It's the pride and joy of areas like Sauternes and Barsac for its ability to incur botrytis, or noble rot. The grape takes well to the fungus and in turn produces rich, golden,...
