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

#56 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Our 2008 Provenance Vineyards Estate Sauvignon Blanc—an exclusive bottling from our stellar winery vineyard—shows off layered aromas of white peach, cantaloupe, caramel, vanilla and nutmeg. Its crisp, dry flavors of tropical fruit and lemon meringue pie are richly textured from sur lie aging. This beautifully balanced wine combines creaminess with fresh acidity that adds vibrancy to the fruit-intense finish.

Critical Acclaim

"#56 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Key lime, passion fruit, melon and nectarine flavors are ripe, juicy and fleshy, with great intensity, a vivid acidity and terrific focus and clarity. Drink now. 15,360 cases made."

Provenance hit it good here. I tried this at the estate when it was first bottled and I was pleasantly surprised, you ge a tremendous amount of tropical fruit, and peach flavors. Just a hint of vanilla, but truly a delictable California Sav Blanc.
