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

Mayacamas Chardonnay shows banana, lychee, and lemon on the nose in the bouquet. On the palate, you get white Figs, white peach, pear, and crisp apple. The very subtle French Oak treatment is in the background, and the acidity is bright.

The 2010 Chardonnay is composed of 100% Chardonnay grapes. The thin, rocky volcanic soil at Mayacamas produces small, intensely flavored grapes. Mild summers and wet, cold winters magnify these characteristics. The vines are also "dry farmed" (unirrigated) which produces great richness of varietal flavor.
