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

This Arboleda Sauvignon Blanc from Aconcagua Costa has a straw-yellow colour with green highlights. With extraordinary aromatic intensity, the wine is a true reflection of its terroir and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Its mineral notes are accompanied by green chilli, tomato leaf, and fresh herbal tones and a sharp aromatic intensity. A refreshing mineral palate and crisp acidity make this wine a fine example of this cold climate variety, which also offers liveliness and exotic fruit for an enjoyably lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A hint of cream lays into a core of fresh citrus, pineapple and gooseberry notes, remaining focused and pure through the long, mineral-tinged finish."
89 Points

"The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Aconcagua Costa comes from the Chilhue estate just a few miles from the Pacific. It has a fine, gooseberry and grass clipping bouquet with touches of green asparagus underneath. The palate is crisp and citrusy on the entry with orange rind and white peach, leading to a very composed, fresh finish."
88 Points

"Pale yellow. Fresh citrus fruit and green apple aromas display a saline quality and a touch of pungent herbs. Salty, penetrating lime pith and melon flavors offer good clarity and a refreshingly bitter quality. Finishes with firm bite and cut, leaving a tangy lime note behind. This fat-free wine is quite grown-up."

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....
