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

Bright, clear straw color with pale green tints. Crisp aromas of citrus, gooseberry. Well-balanced, with mineral flavors and melon on the finish. This wine is a great aperitif and well-suited for shrimp or salmon carpaccio. It also complements main courses such as seasoned fish and Mediterranean salad, or with light cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Light yellow. Fresh pear, sweet butter and nectarine aromas expand with air, picking up subtle anise and herbal nuances. Pliant orchard fruit flavors are brightened by a tangy citrus zest nuance and gain weight with air. Leaves a nervy citrus quality behind on the focused finish."
89 Points

"Smells neither tropical nor citric as it falls somewhere in the middle of those two common denominators. Feels wet, fresh and minerally, with flavors of lime, green melon, sour apple, green herbs and mineral. Clean, well-cut and tight on the finish, with zesty length."
88 Points

Learn About Casa Silva Map ItMap It

Founded in 1892 by French wine pioneer and ancestor Emilio Bouchon, Casa Silva is now owned by Mario Silva and family - the fifth generation of winemakers. Many of the vines planted are over 90 years old, carried over from Bordeaux, pre-phylloxera, by the first generation. Previously selling their juice to larger, bulk wineries, Casa Silva began a bold, estate bottling program in 1997. Now, the Silva Family are viewed as leaders of the new generation of premium wine producers, and their wines have received international acclaim.

Learn About Chile

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....
