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

This Torrontes represents the first wine produced outside the province of Mendoza. It is made from a 35 year-old Torrontes vineyard in Salta that produced a wine of an intense yellow-green color with a delicate nose of white flowers, such as rose and citrus blossom as well as notes of mature white fruits and citrus zest. It is well structured, with lively acidity, centered on aromatic intensity and a delicate finish.

This wine is ideal as an aperitif and a perfect match with Asian food, fish dishes and fresh salads.

Critical Acclaim

"Attractive mineral notes, spice, honey, melon, hint of tropical; round mouth-feel, stylish."
