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 Riesling tastes racy, elegant, and delicately fruity. It has lots of finesse.

Critical Acclaim

"Very pure and racy, delivering apple, pear and white peach flavors, with loads of mineral notes. The lithe, spice-charged finish features notes of sea salt and mineral. Drink now through 2040. 600 cases made."
94 Points

"White peach, hyacinth and clover on the nose. Subtly sweet papaya fruit and a hint of lime on the palate, with a creamy quality held in check by crisp minerality. Seductive riesling with a penetratingly spicy finish."
92 Points
