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

Pale yellow in color, giving off light bubbles and crown making. Intense touches of fresh fruit (citrus fruit, apple and pineapple), together with touches of yeast and bread making, and an anisette background with touches of hay. Dry but intense mouth-tasting, good carbonic detachment, fruity aroma, long and persistent final touch.

It is an ideal Cava for drinking with an aperitif and a great variety of dishes, from fish and shellfish to light meat, pasta, rice, salads, smoked foods, sausages, etc. The light presence of carbonic fizz makes it refreshing and an ideal complement for digestion processes.

Critical Acclaim

"Mont-Marcal’s entry level Brut Reserva and Brut Rosado are excellent values noted on the Best Buy chart at the end of this report. The N.V. Brut Extremarium is light straw-colored with persistent small bubbles and aromas of mineral, wheat thin, and green apple. Intense and crisp on the palate, this nicely balanced sparkling wine offers a very good rapport between price and quality. "
