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 Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2011 is perfumed and luscious – displaying all the essence of the Viognier variety. It has pure aromas of apricot nectar, lifted honeysuckle and orange oil perfume. The palate is long, rich and luscious, with intense stone fruit – particularly apricots – and finishing with an aromatic citrus freshness. This wine will continue to grow and develop in the bottle firstly showing enhanced apricots and spice, then after a couple of years developing honey flavors and toast. A wonderful food wine - try it with Moroccan Tagine.

Critical Acclaim

"Polished, silky and round, gleaming with spicy pear and pineapple flavors, echoing a floral purity on the long, dry finish."
91 Points

"Scents of orange oil, zest and pith combine in this tight, fragrant white. It's rich and substantial without being perfumed, lasting with an intriguing delicacy. Pour it with a blanquette de veau."
90 Points

Yalumba is arguably one of the world's leading producers of this wonderful variety. The 2011 Eden Valley exhibits hints of apricots with touches of oak and viscosity. This wine has wonderful texture and depth, best enjoyed with food.
