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

Could be described as "the cheerful one" – its fragrance is so pleasing. Aromas of red berries, above all raspberries, but also ripe little grapes, passion fruit and vineyard peach literally jump out of the glass.

On the palate: very elegant and lively, with a very fine acidity that ensures a "kick" and that certain something. A mouthful of pleasure that's like being on the wings of a butterfly.

Pairings: Smoked salmon or trout, Asian spiced dishes with a light soy sauce, chicken dishes with a creamy sauce, pasta with shrimps or fish with a creamy sauce or a beurre blanc.

Critical Acclaim

"A mix of mineral and spice as much as apple and black currant flavors, this white rides a beam of acidity to a lingering finish. This is on the severe side now, but intense and satisfying. Drink now through 2020. 1,775 cases made. "
