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 EQ Pinot Noir is made from 6 different lots in the Matetic Vineyards which leads to a wine of great complexity. The juice from each lot is kept separate in small open tanks with a cold soaking for 5 days. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation and is aged in 100% French Oak for 11 months.

This Pinot Noir is a deep ruby red color with aromas of roses, cherries, strawberry marmalade, and subtle hints of earth, anise and spices. The aromas are confirmed in the complex, delicate and very elegant palate. Fine tannins, soft texture and perfect balance lead to a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The red wines begin with the medium ruby-colored 2007 Pinot Noir EQ. It offers up a captivating nose of smoke, rose petals, black cherry, and black raspberry. Round and smooth on the palate with excellent grip, this first-class Pinot will provide enjoyment through 2017.

The nature of Chile’s wine industry mitigates against small, boutique wineries. One of the few that comes close to qualifying is the biodynamically farmed Matetic winery. It is a brilliantly run winery whose youthful vineyards will only get better with the passage of time. "

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....
