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

Aromas of lime zest, tangerine, candied ginger, and wet stone with subtle floral/jasmine notes. The palate has bright lime juice and citrus up front, accentuated by notes of white peach, minerality, and grapefruit. Full mouthfeel mid palate followed by clean, crisp, mouth-watering acidity in the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Lusciously ripe peach and nectarine on the nose of this Riesling belie a palate that’s remarkably herbal, elegant and dry. It’s concentrated, with flavors of apple skin and citrus, and finishes long, with refreshing tea-leaf astringency. Editors' Choice"

Very enjoyable. Lovely DRY Riesling with great balance. Drinks nicely on its own. Bouquet is welcoming but not intoxicating. Would enjoy drinking again, but not five stars.
