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

It is always interesting and challenging to make a Riesling from a very different climate such as the wet and cool Willamette Valley. Because of the climate conditions, we have decided to pick the grapes for this wine early (at about 19 Brix) and craft the wine in a German Kabinett style.

The wine shows intense notes of apple, honey and grapefruit. This is a sweet wine with an incredible acidity and low pH . making it taste quite dry for its Residual Sugar. The wine has the potential to age for 30 years (if you are patient enough).

Try this wine with some dry fruits, some cheeses (goat cheeses are best), ice cream would also work wonders. This would also make a great aperitif.

The alcohol is 8.8%, acid is 0.84%, pH is 2.81 and Residual Sugar 5.2%

Critical Acclaim

"Lively, tangy and generous with its pear and pineapple flavors, finishing with pizzazz. Drink now through 2013."

A great value wine. Has some hallmarks of a traditional Mosel riesling at half the price. Had with a pretty spicy Thai dish and worked very well.
