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

Pale straw color with golden hues. Aromas of banana, pineapple, guava, lemon and minerality, with floral notes. Flavors include banana, pear, apple, lime, lemon zest, tangerine and touches of minerality. The mouthfeel is dry and crisp, with some weight and well-balanced, lingering acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"Done in a dry style, this fine effort is sourced from the Wallula Benches vineyard. It’s good juice, with a delicious mix of stone fruits, citrus zest and a hint of sweet honey. "

Pretty good! I tend to not like the more citrus-y wines. This goes down smooth, not too tart. I think perfect for fish & seafood! Yum!
