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

Montes Alpha Chardonnay has an intense golden color with green hues that shows a clean and brilliant wine. On the nose the wine is powerful, showcasing the wonderful character of its premium cool-climate Casablanca Chardonnay grapes while banana, pineapple, yellow melon and tropical fruits become evident on the mouth, accompanied by a fine acidity and well integrated French oak that adds a touch of elegance to this ripe and rich wine without covering its flavors. A wine of great balance and softness with a long and very pleasant toasted almond finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A chardonnay with pretty apple pie, cream and a lemon rind. Full body, with bright acidity and yogurt undertones and a tangy finish. A stylish "drink me" chardonnay. Only 30% malo. Drink now."

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....
