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

A golden yellow colored wine. On the nose it is fresh, intense and complex, where mineral aromas predominate. Elegantly complemented by hints of honey and citrus fruits that evoke a smooth maturity with a balanced acidity. This Chardonnay has a toasted finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Blunt at first, this wine needs time in a decanter to evolve past its firm mineral notes toward fruit. Scents of red apply and melon flavors develop as the texture turns opulent. An ample chardonnay to serve with grilled pork.

Wonderful wine for a sunny summer day. Light and crisp with a splash of honey at the finish. Enjoyable and delicious paired with cheese and meats.

I am NOT a chardonnay liker. But, this one is not too bad. I agree with W&S that the wine is better after it opens up a bit. It is not too acidic and an easy drink for a non-Chard gal.

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....
