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 Bio Bio Valley, situated 500 km south of Santiago and 50 km. from the coast, is the southernmost wine producing region in Chile. The alluvial and volcanic stones, rocks, clay and sand in the soil gradually stress the vines, making it very difficult for them to find nutrients. The temperate Mediterranean climate of the valley, the influence of the sea and the 1200 mm of rain per year, provide perfect conditions of cold and heat, which enable the grapes to mature slowly, thus obtaining intense aromas.

Delicate olive green colour. Its aroma is elegant and complex with expressive varietal notes, mixed with spicy aromas, recently cut grass, mineral touches and tropical fruit such as passion fruit, a touch of mango and pink grapefruit. Attractive, refreshing, deep and has a crunchy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale straw. Sexy, strikingly precise aromas of tangerine, flowers, wet stone and pungent herbs. Racy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are complemented by deeper floral honey and anise qualities, picking up a dusty talc note on the back end. Blends depth with vivacity, and finishes with excellent cut and persistence. This is a superb value"

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....
