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

Intense, yet clean fragrances of tropical white fruit make up the bouquet. On the palate, it is refreshing and crisp with grassy notes. A well-balanced wine with a rounded mouthfeel and lingering finish of slight, pleasant bitterness.

Critical Acclaim

"Fruit skin scents of green apple and prickly pear provide a tight and tangy structure. The sweet orange and pear flavors are rich and smooth, while the texture feels polished. For gambas al ajillo. "

The Lusco estate is located within the D.O. of Rias Baixas in the Condado do Tea sub-zone of Pontevedra. The entire six hectare expanse is planted with Albariño vines.
