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

An intense, bright, golden yellow, this Chardonnay has aroma notes of citrus and quince with tropical fruits, such as banana and pineapple, that intermingle with fine hint of toast that lend complexity. On the palate, this wine is well-rounded and lush with tremendous balance and acidity that refreshes the palate from beginning to end. This Chardonnay culminates in a long and elegant fruity finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Very ripe and friendly, with lush Jonagold apple, Bosc pear and melon fruit flavors that glide over a buttered almond hint, all while staying pure and bright through the lengthy finish. Delicious."

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....
