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

This youthfully fresh wine makes an elegant impression. Clear, bright yellow in colour, its nose exhibits fine floral and fruit aromas: hints of apple and tropical fruit are prevalent in the bouquet. An agreeable, fresh acidity accompanies this mineral wine through its fine harmonious finish.

I'm not a fan of Pinot Blanc (or pinot bianco), it tends to be uninteresting, flabby and...well, not worth it. But this is a key wine from the Alto-Adige region, showing off the beautiful whites that are produced there--and why that region may be the best white wine region in the world (debatable, obviously). Beautiful nose full of fruits (peaches and apricots mostly) and a powerful palate for a white wine--smooth, creamy and full. Love it. If you're wondering what to pair it with--go traditional with cured meats from the region and reach, Austrian influenced stews--or think of it as you would a Chardonnay (pork, chicken, fatty fishes).

Pinot Blanc(pee-no blahnk) Pretty and Simple A mutation of the Pinot family, Pinot Blanc was once commonly mistaken for Chardonnay - it looks quite similar on the vine. But true Pinot Blanc lacks most Chardonnay characteristics. The grape is most at home in Alsace, where it is used both in blends as well as a sole varietal. It's also found in Italy...
