Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
This vintage is bright and racy, with crisp flavors of green apple and a hint . Minerality notes, lively acidity, and green grassy elements balance the wine nicely. It finishes long with a touch of lemon zest. My favorite wine with oysters, it pairs well with most all seafood.
"Tangent’s unoaked Sauvignon Blancs are consistently good, and make versatile wines for food pairing. This 2012 vintage really defines their style. The wine is rich and dry in honey, limes, lemons and nectarines, with acidity so tart, it makes the mouth water. The winemaker suggests pairing with oysters, but it will go with almost anything."
