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

Color: Straw yellow.

Nose: orange tree flowers, vanilla.

Flavor: Sapid, vanilla tones.

Critical Acclaim

"Needs air to blow off some initial funk and reveal notes of Sicilian lemon and white peaches and cream on the nose and palate, with honey and pomice stone. Full-bodied and silky, with good acidity to highlight the fruit. Finishes with creamy, lightly spiced vanilla that lingers. Carricante, Catarratto, Insolia, Grecanico and Chardonnay. Drink now. 1,200 cases made."
