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 color is clean and bright, light yellow. The bouquet: Rich and concentrated with layers of tasty pear, fig and toasty hazelnut. On the palate the wine is full-bodied with distinct minerality on the palate and a core of ripe, opulent fig and pear flavors. A long lasting, vibrant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Superfresh, with vibrant tangerine, yellow apple and heather notes backed by nice cut on the mineral-filled finish. A deliciously unadorned style. Drink now through 2012."
90 Points

"The 2009 Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay was sourced from the Limari Valley and was barrel-fermented and aged for 12 months in 33% new French oak. Notions of popcorn, toast, spiced apple, melon, and jasmine lead to a medium-bodied, ripe plush Chardonnay with savory flavors, lively acidity, and excellent length. It is an outstanding value."
90 Points

"Bright yellow. Pungent melon, pit fruit and dried fig aromas, lifted by exotic floral and lees notes that gain strength with air. Dry but fleshy nectarine and pear flavors become sweeter with air and pick up a gentle tarragon note. Stains the palate on the incisive finish, which leaves sweet honeydew, orchard fruit and herbal notes behind. I'd like to see this up against a number of $50+ American chardonnays."

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....
