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

Straw in color with green hues, the aroma of the Yalumba Organic Viognier 2011 is varietal and alluring earthy nose upfront before settling into the pretty aroma's of white flowers, jasmine and honeysuckle with hints of fennel. The palate is a beautiful layering of distinct flavors starting with fresh apricot nectar, leading into a creamy mid palate with bright citrus and Asian five spice on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Supple and relatively light on its feet, but brimming with honeysuckle-immersed pear, lemon and passion fruit flavors. Finishes with finesse. "
