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 poor soils and gentle ocean breezes create tremendous aromatic potential and the great intensity reflected in the wine's floral aromas and fresh, exotic fruit.

A full, balanced wine with personality and exquisite elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale, green-edged straw. Energetic aromas of lime, lemongrass, minerals and honeysuckle are underscored by a subtle note of tarragon. Stains the palate with seemingly weightless citrus and orchard fruit flavors, picking up zesty spice and mineral qualities on the back end. the finish repeats the lemongrass and mineral notes and lingers impressively. I'd stack this up against plenty of the Loire Valley sauvignon blancs I've had in the last year."
91 Points

"Very fresh, with bracing lemon peel, white asparagus and herb notes backed by a clean, salt-tinged finish. Deliciously pure. Drink now."
90 Points

"The 2008 Amayna Sauvignon Blanc emits a stylish perfume of fresh herbs, new cut grass, citrus, and melon. Elegant yet mouth-filling, this flavorful effort has superb concentration and length. It is an outstanding 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....
