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

Wine Spots Monterey Chardonnay has crisp acidity and intense tropical fruit, hallmarks of Monterey. Clean toasty notes of sweet oak and vanilla lead to a lively finish. Barrel-fermented in small, French oak barrels and aged sur lie for 12 months.

Monterey, located along the central coast of California, benefits from the Pacific Ocean's morning fog and cool winds. The cool-climate marine influence creates one of the world's longest growing seasons, ideal for producing Chardonnay wines full of character and balanced acidity.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with chicken, pasta dishes with a cream sauce, salmon, seafood and mild cheeses.
