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

The color is bright, crystalline straw yellow. The aroma is very expressive and exuberant, with tremendous personality. Notes of herbes fines framed by aromas of lime and mineral notes that lend complexity and elegance. On the palate it's voluminous, well-balanced, and fresh, with the clear notes of green chilies that are so typical in this valley and a harmoniously crisp finish. with oysters and ceviches. Also good with baked or grilled fish and goat cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"Grapefruit aromas and flavors shoot through this sauvignon with pleasing, juicy bitterness. That grapefruit character is surrounded by other citrus notes, building on the volume of the wine with intense freshness."

This is a typical Chilean Sauvignon Blanc; more citrus than New Zealand or domestic products. Very enjoyable, but not quite on par with Veramonte (which seems to be sold out everywhere). It was a great purchase at $10/bottle and will be a great summer wine.

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....
