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

Pale sunshine yellow color and slightly frizzante, this Moscato d'Asti has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate it is delicately sweet and sparkling with modest acidity, good balance, good complexity and a finish of fresh apricots. Made with 100% Moscato.

Excellent as an aperitif, or a perfect accompaniment to Pan-Asian cuisine and lobster as well as pastries, fruit based and creamy desserts, and blue cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Lightly sweet and floral, this fresh and zesty version displays flavors of mandarin orange sorbet, passion fruit and candied ginger, all set on a fine, creamy bead."
