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

Richly structured, this elegant Chardonnay has well balanced flavors of pineapple, peaches, and pears, concluding in a creamy vanilla finish.

Perfect match for roasted chicken, grilled seafood dishes, pork tenderloin, turkey and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Light gold. Shy aromas of nectarine and nutmeg are complicated by a leesy element. Juicy and fine-grained, with a silky texture to the pitfruit spice flavors. A very nicely balanced but reticent chardonnay with well integrated acidity and a dry, nervy finish."

Ok, now THIS wine is very alcoholic-like. It's probably because the year of the wine is 2009. USUALLY when I rate my wine it's always five stars. This time for this particular wine I will give it 4 stars.

Learn About Chile

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....
