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

This Riesling is dry and supple with aromas of key lime and ripe peach. Flavors of orange peel, apricot and lemon curd fill the palate. Crisp, dry and aromatic, this wine shows classic Finger Lakes style. Riesling is the flagship variety of the Finger Lakes and, when produced in this dry and elegant style, is refreshing, intriguing and satisfying. It is a great match with a variety of foods and will age elegantly.
