Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

Alluring aromas of apricot and quince are underscored with smooth subtle oak notes. Refreshingly lively featuring beautiful texture and depth with fresh and vibrant acidity leading to a long and lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A juicy chardonnay with sliced apple and bread dough. Full body, and very fresh with lots of mineral, chalky character and white pepper."

One of the world's greatest bargain Chardonnays, the 2012 Veramonte shows plenty of New World flavors; lovely from start to finish, plenty of jubilant core fruit; dry, but not biting in the finish.

This is a solid three star wine and a four star value. Straw-gold color, medium body, leggy. When still chilled the nose is medium-small, as the wine warms it is medium sized: Apple, a hint of cinnamon, oak. Big flavors, mouth-filling; good acidity with ample fruit to balance it. Something of a nice finish; is there a hint of CO2 developing? The wine is secured with a screw-cap-closure and I regard these as unreliable and definitely not suitable for holding the wine for more than a year, still, at $10 it is a very good value for current consumption, better than three more expensive ones in this current tasting flight ($15, $15 and $25 wines).

Veramonte represents a return to Agustin Huneeus' Chilean roots. When he spearheaded development of the Veramonte Estate in 1990, there were less than 100 acres of grapevines planted in the Casablanca Valley. The coastal mountain ranges surrounding the Casablanca estate create a unique terroir with a diversity of microclimates. The valley floor's cool climate is reminiscent of...

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....
