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 wine is a very pale yellow color, with green hues. The nose is complex and delicate, with aromas of mature tropical fruit such as mango and lychee, with apple custard (cherimoya), papaya and lime peel, mixed in with herbal notes and green chili. The mouth is concentrated, fruity and fresh, dominated by a persistent mineral overtone.

This Sauvignon Blanc is ideally served with oily fishes such as salmon or bluefish, cerviche, sea urchin, oysters and sharp cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"As if the wine had no time to lose, this Sauvignon immediately delivers all the nuances of fruit grown in the far-coast of Casablanca. Its notes of grass, herbs and citrus fruit power out of the glass with surprising intensity. A wine of profound flavor depths, this is structured and balanced to evolve over the next two to three years in the bottle. EQ Coastal comes from one of the new Matetic vineyards, hard by the sea, on a hillside facing north."
94 Points

"Strikingly pungent on first take, with crackling aromas of cactus, nettle, lime and grapefruit. Feels zesty, deep and layered, with an even mix of tropical fruit flavors, stone fruits and green notes. About as right as it gets for Chilean Sauvignon Blanc."

We were disappointed in this wine. Lacked crispness and left an unpleasant finish.

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....
