Pfaffl Austrian Pepper Gruner Veltliner 2010
Gruner Veltliner from Austria
Pale gold with green reflections. Aromatic, with notes of citrus, spice and wild herbs. Lively and fruit-forward on the palate, with a hint of black pepper and a spicy finish. A versatile, food-friendly wine delicious with a range of dishes – from favorite American fare to Asian-inspired dishes.
Wine SpectatorThere's a spicy purity to this white, with rich ripe citrus and grapefruit flavors. The minerally finish is long, crisp and refreshing. Drink now through 2017.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
