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 seventh vintage of the Lucia Highlands Vineyard Chardonnay is characteristically rich and elegant, offering butter, prailine ice cream, with deeply concentrated layers of apple, ripe pear, and pineapple, and a hint of caramel from oak aging. The lingering butterscotch finish, coupled with firm natural acidity, will invite you back for continued enjoyment. Pair this wine with grilled chicken, pork, or creamy pasta dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and creamy, with a smooth, buttery mouthfeel carrying flavors of ripe peaches, pears and limes. Santa Lucia’s cool climate brings a brisk cut of mouthwatering acidity. Good price for a Chardonnay this fancy. Editors' Choice."
