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

True to the winery's Mapuche name, meaning "magician," winemakers Alejandro Jofre and Ricardo Rivadeniera have created a magical rosé made from a blend of Malbec, Syrah, and Petit Verdot from Chile's Colchagua Valley. This vintage's bouquet is floral with subtle notes of citrus, raspberry and fresh spice. The palate is creamy, fresh and well balanced. It is a versatile wine that pairs equally well with goat cheese, seafood, grilled chicken and delicately seasoned Asian dishes. Just 12% alcohol.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, lurid pink. Exotically perfumed bouquet displays sauvignon blanc-like scents of pink grapefruit, lime and herbs, with a peppery overtone. Fresh and nervy, with tangy citrus flavors and a touch of bitter quinine gaining strength with air. The finish is firm, brisk and persistent. This singular wine is made from 50% malbec, 40% syrah and 10% petit verdot but acts like a white wine."

Learn About Calcu

In the local Mapuche language, Calcu means “healing doctor” or “magician.” And indeed, winemakers Alejandro Jofre and Ricardo Rivadeniera have created a magical "Super Chilean" blend that expresses the diversity of the Colchagua Valley.

Like the bull on label, Calcu is exuberant and unrestrained. Rather than being tied to a particular terroir, Calcu is made with grapes harvested from throughout the Colchagua Valley, revealing different aspects of the valley’s dynamic character with every vintage

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
