Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Portrays bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, this wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling.
The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare
(from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).
"Right on the borderline between dry and sweet, this richly fruity Riesling is packed with flavors of peach, apricot, pear, a hint of mint, and a streak of wet stone. There is a lot going on for such an inexpensive wine."
Light & Crisp
Good value, light, almost like a sauvignon blanc
Fruity & Smooth
Surprise! Crisp, Clean, slightly off-dry with a fruit-forward, medium finish. Not a perfect Riesling, but darn close! At this price point - a great value and very quaffable.
great wine - not too sweet, good wiht light dinner
Fruity & Smooth
Pork > Tenderloin, Chicken > Herbs, White Fish > Stew, White Fish > Fish Tacos
Very nice all round Riesling. Not too dry but leaves your mouth wanting another taste. For the money a great buy.
Not a fan.
Fruity & Smooth
Way too sweet... compares to a light Moscato.
