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, lychee and papaya with subtle notes of apple custard and lime peel, mixed in with herbal and floral notes. The mouth is concentrated, fruity and fresh, dominated by a persistent mineral overtone.

This Sauvignon Blanc is ideally served with seafood such as salmon or bluefish, ceviche, sea urchin and oysters. It also pairs well with goat cheese and sharp, blue cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2013 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc has to be one of the finest Sauvignons I tasted from Chile. The 2013 was a cool vintage in Casablanca, and produced a wine that has fresh, marine and herbal aromas, all of them in a subtle, elegant way. It is both fresh and ripe, with a light to medium-bodied palate showing very good acidity, compact with clean, delineated flavors (the archetypal gooseberries) and good underlying minerality making it very supple and tasty. Somehow this wine seems more complete and nuanced than most other Sauvignons I tasted. I’d love to see how it ages, as the balance promises a bright future. Great! I could hardly believe the price – what a bargain! Julio Bastias is the winemaker of Matetic Vineyards, which is in between the Casablanca and San Antonio appellations. I met with a bunch of winemakers from the zone and asked them to bring a couple of bottles each, and he showed up with bottled samples of the soil from each of the vineyards from the wines he brought along. The property has over 20,000 hectares but only 160 hectares are planted with vineyards, which are worked by biodynamic principles and have been fully certified since 2003. With such great wines here, I should try to visit them next time. One of the names that form the new Chile. "

"Smooth and fresh, this is a citrus-scented sauvignon, its herbal spice adding details that slowly fill out the wine’s complexity. A classic coastal white, this comes from a vineyard planted in 1997 about five miles from the Pacific."

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....
