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

Very exuberant, lively nose leading to a tightly wound palate with energy and verve. The absence of oak further highlights the citrus, cut grass and spice characters of the varietals. We were careful to harvest the grapes while the acids were still bright, giving a lovely clean finish. Hard not to have another glass!

Critical Acclaim

"Crisp, zingy acidity and dryness make this wine instantly appealing. It’s so bright and clean, but quite rich in peach, pear, lime and lemongrass flavors. A great cocktail sipper, or with Asian food."
88 Points

"Pale gold. High-pitched aromas of pear, green apple, lemon zest and honeysuckle. Surprisingly supple on the palate, with juicy flavors of fresh pineapple and orchard fruits. The nicely persistent finish shows spice and bee pollen notes and good closing cut."
88 Points

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
