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 2010 Sauvignon Blanc has a great range of aromas and flavors that seem to change and evolve in the glass. We get citrus, crushed herbs and a distinctive gooseberry lift with green notes reminiscent of fresh pea pods but also a sweet leafy boxwood aroma. On the palate there are flavors of grapefruit and red capsicum where mid palate fruit sweetness is balanced by a fresh, lively citrus acidity.

Sauvignon Blanc is a very food-friendly wine and terrific for appetizers such as artichoke dip, veggie dishes or dips, garlic or Italian seasonings in creamy sauces, fragrant salads, like Greek, caesar or garden, Thai food, fish (sushi), poultry and so much more.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc offers pronounced notes of gooseberries, lemon juice and apple slices over hints of fresh grass. Medium bodied, it gives a good concentration of vibrant citrus and gooseberry flavors with crisp acidity and a long zesty finish. This is textbook Marlborough Sauvignon. Drinking now, it should remain fresh through 2013. "
87 Points

"Relatively light bodied, this Sauvignon Blanc has pungent aromas of crushed tomato leaf and nettles. It's a green style from start to finish, capped off by lime-like acids."
