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

Crisp, refreshing and unbelievably juicy. The nose is a citrus salad, with crushed lemons and limes and a hint of herbal freshness. The mouth is lacy, ripe yet endlessly vibrant, each sip infused with white fruits and lemon zest, and the finish lively with notes of white pepper and liquid minerals. Clean with just enough complexity to keep the palate invigorated.

Critical Acclaim

"Very nicely done for a new brand that we haven’t seen before. This is Chilean SB in fine form. It’s a mix of green and ripe fruits both on the nose and palate. Aromas of gooseberry and mango are alluring, and in the mouth it bounces along on a wave of bracing acidity. Elegant and easier toprocess than Quintay’s more pungent, angular and demanding Reserva."

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....
