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

A brilliant golden color, sharp and clear. An intense and delicate bouquet, the dominating fruits are pineapple and melon, with faint touches of vanilla. The elegant oak combines perfectly with the fruit and the acidity. On the palate, it is friendly, very elegant and flavorful. The good alcohol content goes well with the slickness of this long and delicate wine.

A very good companion for tuna or steak tartar, smoked salmon, sashimi, seafood pasta with cream sauce, and for most fatty, grilled fish such as swordfish and tuna.

Critical Acclaim

"Hint of toast, plenty of pear, melon, and apple aromas and flavors; excellent depth and length"

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....
