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

#28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

A clear golden amber color. At first, botrytis, apricot, orange peel and honey hit the nose, followed more explicitly by fig, with wood and smoky notes flashing up, and both orange peel and honey returning in the end. The palate is rich with orange and notes of botrytis, which is then swept by apricot with a citrusy aftertaste. Wonderful and lively acidity. A touch of mint also appears with its cooling and refreshing effects. Thanks to the crisp acidity, it is not the sweetness, but the rich aromas that add up to the extremely long finish. Very promising, already fascinating aszú wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Superclean and defined, delivering beeswax, apricot, clementine and saline mineral notes that converge on the racy finish. Refined in both texture and profile, with harmony and a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2030. 5,637 cases made. "
94 Points

"Just one whiff of this wine reveals an intoxicating perfume of wildflower honey marked with zesty, fresh orange peel. An intensly concentrated honey elixer, it ripples persistently on the palate with a brilliant spray of Meyer lemon juice and a rich, vanilla cream note. "

Lingering and tingling tastes of citrus and honey envelope the palate. The viscosity is the perfect blend of feel and taste combined to make each sip a sensual experience. Any more flavor would be gilding the lily, any less and it's perfection would be lost. This is truly a dessert wine to be savored on it's own merit, not as a mere accompaniment to a sweet dish.

The first Tokaji Aszú (toh-KAY ah-SOO) wine was created in the 1600s, perhaps by accident - a harvest delayed by threat of enemy invasion. In 1700, Tokaj became the first European region to have its vineyards classified, its uniquely varied terroirs and climates rated Primae Classis, Secundae Classis, Tertius Classis (1st Growth, 2nd Growth, 3rd Growth) by Prince Rakoczi of...
