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

The stylistic vision of this wine is based upon the Italian Moscato, a Moscato of Asti; light, fresh and low in alcohol.

The nose opens with effervescent aromas of orange, peach, pear and honeysuckle. The bright mouthfeel and refreshingly tangy acidity featuring tart green apple is balanced with sweet, explosive pear flavors. A slight effervescence cleanses the palate. The semi-sparkling bubbles also contribute to a stimulating mouthfeel. The finish is lively, clean and fresh, inviting another sip.

Great by itself on the patio. The perfect wine for brunch or dessert, and also a good match with fresh strawberries, brandied pears, strawberry-rhubarb meringue and cheesecake. Serve ice cold (to preserve the CO2 bubbles) in a champagne flute and watch the bubbles tickle your nose.
