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 Syrah Single Vineyard is also from Errazuriz' Don Maximiano Estate in the Aconcagua Valley. The Syrah vineyard was planted in 1992 on a northwest- facing 5° slope with gravelly, sandy clay soils which drain very well, the first planting of Syrah in Chile. The grapes are hand-picked in Errazuriz' prestigious Don Maximiano Estate, a semi-desert region where the hot summer days are cooled by afternoon breezes. The high day-night temperature differences of the Don Maximiano Estate slows ripening and helps create intensity of flavors and concentration. Syrah has clearly found a home in the Aconcagua Valley, and its development will be one of the most interesting stories in coming years.

A gorgeous violet-ruby-red in color, with a nose that offers a blend of fruits that recall blackberries and ripe plum, along with chocolate, incense and some roasted aromas. The palate presents plenty of nerve, with a good structure and plenty of juiciness that leads to a fresh sensation to this persistent wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Opens with a good spread of herbs, perfume, black fruit and sauciness, while the palate is lively and healthy, with raspberry, plum, and herbal shadings. Definitely not a shy wine, but not overpowering either. Finishes with class, complexity and notes of herbs and menthol. Drink now through 2012."

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....
