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

Ruby red color with bluish tones, with complex, intense dry red fruit aroma and prune notes with balsamic tones of toasted oak and vanilla. Sweet and round tannins, well structured with volume in mouth, good persistence.

Pairs with any kind of red and white spicy meats, pastas and fatty fishes like salmon.

Critical Acclaim

"This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenère is the best wine from Santa Alicia I’ve come across. The nose is spicy, dry and delivers earthy cherry and plum aromas. It feels right and tastes of spicy raspberry and plum, with a fruity, complex finish. A good wine for food with nice acidity;"

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....
