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

Light straw with vibrant green tinges. Clean citrus aromas with underlying floral elements to give freshness and vibrancy. A crisp lemon-lime flavored palate with a fine and refreshingly dry finish. Intentionally made in a dry, yet immediately approachable, style this new Promised Land Riesling is at once crisp and refreshing – a true pleasure to drink on those long Summer afternoons…you could even try it over ice!

Critical Acclaim

"A bit softer and more approachable than many Australian Rieslings, but it still bears a familial resemblance to Wakefield’s Clare Valley Riesling, with hints of crushed stone or chalk and tangerine-citrus notes."
