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

Our 2010 Gewürztraminer is crafted from Washington grapes. We often put the juice and the grape skins in contact to extract and unleash the exquisite Gewürztraminer aromas locked in the skin. The juice is then cold temperature fermented over 20 days. We do not use any oak and do not put the wine through malolactic fermentation.

The wine is crisp with a slight residual sugar of 1.7% with flavors of lychee, melon and tangerine. Our Gewurztraminer is an exceptional match with spicy Indian food, lemon chicken and blue cheeses.

Gewurztraminer (Guh-WERTZ-trah-meen-ehr) Spice is Nice If you've ever smelled a lychee, you'll probably recognize a wine made from Gewurztraminer.
