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

This is a deep purple red color Syrah. Intense varietal aromas of violets, red fruit and pepper. The aromas are complemented by notes of chocolate and spices from the oak. It is balanced in the mouth with good body and complexity; it has a long and fresh finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Concentrated blackberry and dark plum aromas offer up tobacco and dried spice notes. The wine is juicy yet full-bodied, with oaky cocofun flavors accenting blackberry, black olive and leather. Fades out smooth and layered. A perennial leader among Chilean Syrah."
91 Points

"Bright purple. Oak-spiced dark berries and candied cherry on the nose, complicated by notes of dried flowers and cracked pepper. Sweet and broad but energetic, featuring velvety texture and pungent blackberry and dark cherry flavors. Finishes on a spicy note and with a lingering vanilla nuance. This is delicious right now."

Pair with: Pasta > Pesto
Great wine. Made me take notice, as few wines do. Amazing taste goes well with pasta/parmesean though not so much with steak tartar. But there was alot of vinegar in the steak tartar, and as they say sell wine with cheese, buy wine with vinegar (or is it apples?) I have a tendency to strongly prefer strong reds like st emillions/bordeaux, but this Corralillo is outstanding.

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....
