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

Bright gold. Fresh melon and tangerine on the nose, with a suave mineral quality adding complexity. Juicy cantaloupe and citrus fruit flavors are concentrated and impressively energetic, picking up bitter herb, anise and floral notes with air. Finishes with excellent cut, clarity and persistence.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Pazo de Galegos Albarino comes from a small estate that has been in existence since the 1500s (and apparently has one of Spain's oldest vines, allegedly 500 years in age, with a trunk the size of a large tree). Aged in stainless steel tanks and put through partial malolactic fermentation, the wine exhibits lots of honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple and apricot characteristics. Attractively fleshy, these wines need to be consumed in their exuberant, fresh youth."
