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

The 2008 mesh Eden Valley Riesling is green and vibrant in appearance. The aroma is zesty lemon and grapefruit with a hint of spice. The palate is powerful, lively and generous, with intense citrus fruit flavors. The wine finishes clean and dry with refreshing slatey acidity.

As is the case with all great Eden Valley Rieslings, mesh will age gracefully and reliably into a mature wine under the Stelvin closure.

Critical Acclaim

"Dry and bracing, this brims with pineapple, green apple and floral aromas and flavors, tightly packed in a taut frame. Needs time. Best from 2011 through 2018. 2,800 cases made."
91 Points

"The 2008 Mesh Riesling is medium straw-colored with an excellent nose of mineral, petrol, melon, and lemon-lime. Medium-bodied, vibrant, and full-flavored, this savory, dry Riesling will evolve for 1-2 years and drink well through 2016. "
