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

The Mád Cuvée is a pale green color, with a delicate flowery nose showing hints of white peach. On the palate it is of medium weight — sweet but with a good acid balance. This wine has exotic fruit flavors and a clean finish of medium length. This late harvest wine can be enjoyed chilled as an aperitif with canapés. It also pairs well with spicy Asian cuisine given its fresh acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"A medium-sweet, racy white, offering dried apricot, candied orange peel and grapefruit notes. Juicy acidity keeps the finish moving, with hints of anise and wild flowers. Drink now through 2018."
90 Points

"A fresh take on Tokaji, this is vivid with sweet tangerine flavor and furmint's electric acidity. Creamy and sweet yet light in feel, it's balanced for fresh fruit or light desserts, like figs split open and stuffed with goat cheese. It's especially impressive for a vintage marked by heavy October rains. Best Buy."
