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

El Chaparral de Vega Sindoa conveys the essence of the tradition of land in the Valley of Nekeas. Wine lovers understant its language and have been loyal year after year to this unique wine whose delicacy, elegance and refinement reflect Spain's northernmost Grenache grapes.

Critical Acclaim

"(made from vines that are reportedly 60 to over 100 years of age): Bright purple. Explosive aromas of raspberry, mulberry, potpourri and dark chocolate. Deep, palate-staining red and dark berry flavors are energized by a note of cracked pepper and pick up spiciness with aeration. The finish echoes the red berry and floral notes and clings with impressive tenacity. This is complex enough to enjoy now. "
