Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

2008 at Maquis was much warmer than ususal which helped to produce very conentrated grapes. High temperatures also meant an earlier harvest and a great balance between power, freshness and elegance. For this vintage the renowned Bordelais Oenologist, Jacques Boissenot, guided Maquis once again on the barrel aging and the blending process.

Blend: 25% Carmenere, 25% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot, 15% Malbec

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....
