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

Pale yellow color with green hues, almost transparent, clean and bright. Marked by its freshness and intensity, with the presence of citrus fruit like grapefruit and citrus peel that combine with notes of chili, boxwood and mineral notes of gunpowder and marine salt. It is a vibrant wine with a very rich acidity, which is fresh, fruity and, above all, mineral, standing out for its identity and freshness. It presents an outstanding volume, which leads to a long and persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This has the jalapeño scent of Elqui sauvignon, as well as its simple freshness, pure acidity and citrus aromas. Mild saline notes provide complexity, placing the wine with seafood, simply cooked with lemon."
