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 grapes were picked in selected lots, coming from three areas in Colchagua Valley: Los Lingues, Apalta and Lolol. The vineyards are carefully pruned, with stringent canopy management and a green harvest. At optimum ripeness, the grapes are hand-picked and brought to the cellar for sorting.

Intense ruby red color, the aroma is all about ripe black cherry, dried herbs, tobacco and dark coffee flavors. Plenty of freshness, the palate is all about red berries with a welcome note of elegant and fine tannins and a long and balanced finish. The wine can be cellared for up to five years.

Critical Acclaim

"Savory, ripe, complex flavors with some elegance, excellent value."

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....

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
