  • 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

Pale lemon in color. Bright and lifted notes of melons, peach skins with a gentle suggestion of banana and oyster shell. Displays intense notes of fresh cantaloupe, peach skins and citrus. Lemon oil like texture and a touch of mineral delicacy provide good palate coverage, driving through to a soft cleansing finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Lively, juicy and appealing for its bright grapefruit and pear flavors, dancing into a refined finish. Drink now."
87 Points

"Light gold. Pungent aromas of pear skin, toasty lees and lemon pith, with a spicy topnote. Dusty and focused on the palate, offering refreshingly bitter citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of tarragon. Closes with firm grip, a hint of candied lemon and lingering spiciness."
87 Points
