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

Showing great delicacy and restraint, the nose reveals spicy green apple with minerally slate, lemon rind notes and a nuance of citrus blossom. Firm, natural acidity carries the length of the palate and is adequately balanced by vibrant citrus flavors with a spicy edge. Long, lingering citrus flavors present now will evolve into toasty, honeyed characters over time.

Critical Acclaim

"A flowery, almost spicy, bouquet, then a finely chiseled and precise palate, lime and mineral flavors intertwined; long-term future assured."
94 Points

"Off vines planted in 1970, the 2009 Riesling has pronounced floral and honey aromas with nuances of frangipani, acacia honey and lime cordial. There's only about 2 g/l of residual sugar left in the wine, so it's a very dry style. The acid is very crisp and there's plenty of concentrated citrus fruit on the light bodied palate with a long steely finish. Drink it now to 2018+. "

I took a flyer on this one and was glad I did. It had the right mix of fruit and verve yet it was surprisingly dry too. Motordavid can sell the remaining stock to me.

For Riesling fans, this being currently 'sold 'out' may be a good thing: the reviews/ratings led me to buy a case instead of just trying it. It is thin, watery, a bit over acidic, very slight mineral, and lacking completely for a ~ $15 buck bottle, imo. I love Rieslings of nearly any kind, but this stuff is almost like a cheap pinot grigio diluted with cubes, by your non-wine drinking friends, at the backyard lawn party. 4 bottles into the case, my tasting impressions are all identical, and this stuff will not get better with anymore age. Very disappointed. Something like Pac Rim at <10 bucks is miles ahead. And,a really top Riesling is like from another planet, by comparo...skip this stuff. GL, mD
