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

The wine's aromatics portray an abundance of pear, jasmine and honey. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly light and aromatic but not cloying or syrupy — this has to do with the balanced acidity (1.01%) in the wine. The 8.9% alcohol makes the wine refreshing and quite food friendly.

Fruit tarts are a classic pairing, but it also pairs well with blue cheeses and curries.

This is a delightful example of an ice wine. Historically, ice wines were the result of picking after a premature frost. Today most of these wines are produced from grapes that are deliberately frozen after picking. The Pacific Rim Riesling is a great introduction to the genre. It is light, fruit filled and succulent, with a sweetness that is well balanced by acid. This is not the most sophisticated version of this genre that has ever been released. Some of the classic ice wines, especially those associated with botyris, develop a wonderful sophistication–deep layering of flavors and enormous complexity. Such wine typically sells at an enormous premium, easily 3 to 5 times the price of this wine. So buy a bottle or two and enjoy it at lunch or a casual supper, either with cheese, dessert, or by itself. It's very enjoyable, even if it will never call attention to itself.
