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 color with green highlights. Delicate and fragrant nose with citrus, floral and some herbal notes. Dry with refreshing, crisp acidity, balance and length. Lees aging in stainless steel for four months after fermentation has given it texture and length on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright with tangy citrus, gooseberry and lovely spice; fine acid structure and silky texture; seamless, juicy and long with great balance. "

Learn About Mount Nelson

After producing a singular Sauvignon Blanc at Tenuta dell’Ornellaia in Tuscany for many years, Marchese Lodovico Antinori wanted to make a wine that captured the same crisp, natural exuberance of the grape, while displaying restraint, elegance and structure. He turned to Marlborough, New Zealand, and in 2003 purchased, with his brother Piero Antinori, a portion of the Meadowbank vineyard. In 2004, they produced the first vintage of Mount Nelson from this property, fulfilling Lodovico’s dream of creating a signature Sauvignon Blanc outside of Italy.
