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

Framed by a light lemony acidity and vibrant minerality, this Pinot Gris was made in the traditional dry style of northern Italy. It is surprisingly full-bodied, with concentrated flavors of peach, ginger and tropical fruit, with a hint of a pine-resin character. A great wine on its own, tangent pinot gris pairs well with a wide range of foods including seafood, pasta with light sauces, even grilled sausages.

Critical Acclaim

"There's no oak on this delightfully dry wine, although you'd never know it from the rich streak of vanilla and smoky butter that accompanies the orange, apricot, lime and honey flavors. It’s a brilliant success, bright and zesty in acidity, and one of the most satisfying Pinot Gris on the market."
90 Points

"Bright, racy and minerally with pure acidity and lively citrus fruit; bracing and agile with focus and purity, long and charming."
