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

Gleaming brilliant gold, our 2012 Dijon Clones Chardonnay bursts with complex aromas of ripe green apple and yellow pear, intermingled with subtle suggestions of white flowers, salted caramel and honeyed graham cracker. The wine exhibits a rounded mouthfeel balanced by refreshing acidity and opens with flavors of fresh apple pie, grilled peach and tropical pineapple. leading into shades of toasted vanilla, lemon creme brulee and ground nutmeg that linger through the lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This is the winery’s best Dijon Clones Chardonnay ever. It shows the balanced, long hangtime fruit of the vintage, bursting with ripe flavors of pineapples, oranges, honeydew melons and pears, along with toasty new French oak and vibrant acidity. What a yummy wine to drink with scallops or crab."
