Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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

Bright pale gold. Cinnamon, nutmeg, lychee and rose petals. Rich, intense, luscious and well balanced with a dry, spicy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A dry, light-bodied style, this offers a streak of minerality underscoring the flavors of melon, guava, Thai basil and ground white pepper. Sleek and clean-cut, with a fresh finish."

I'm a fan of dry Gewurz from Alsace. Most are off-dry to outright sweet; that's fine but it's not wHat I'm looking for. This one is pretty nice, just off-dry, fragrant (of course) and well balanced and a fair price. It isn't the full-bodied, oily, mouth-filling monster I'm looking for but it is Gewurztraminer without a lot of sweetness. Just right for charcuterie, dry cheeses or strongly flavored pork dishes.
