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

50% from Angostura Estate, Colchagua Valley,a vineyard planted in 1912 from original pre-phylloxera vines brought from Bordeaux by the first generation of the family. 50% from Paredones Estate, first vineyard of the Cool Coastal hills of the Colchagua Valley, 8 kilometres away from the Pacific Ocean.

Pale yellow with green hues. On the nose, fresh and powerful, with notes of gooseberry. On the palate, citric, with excellent acidity and notes of bananas. Long, agreeable finish.

This refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect match for seafood dishes, especially oysters and scallops. Enchanting with salmon ceviche or Caesar Salad, it also tastes superb with asparagus or cream cheese. Enjoy it on its own too.

Critical Acclaim

"Light straw; citrus, passion fruit, lively acidity, concentrated, balanced, good length."

Learn About Casa Silva Map ItMap It

Founded in 1892 by French wine pioneer and ancestor Emilio Bouchon, Casa Silva is now owned by Mario Silva and family - the fifth generation of winemakers. Many of the vines planted are over 90 years old, carried over from Bordeaux, pre-phylloxera, by the first generation. Previously selling their juice to larger, bulk wineries, Casa Silva began a bold, estate bottling program in 1997. Now, the Silva Family are viewed as leaders of the new generation of premium wine producers, and their wines have received international acclaim.

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....
