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 yellow color. Intense aromas of citric fruit and grilled hazelnut with a mineral touch. On the palate, great varietal fruit intensity is enhanced by excellent acidity. The afertaste lingers with mineral and fruity notes mixed with hints of French oak. The balance between alcohol and acidity is impressive and gives this wine a freshness, a length, and an aging potential not commonly found in white Chilean wines.

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....
