Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its dark garnet color announces an exuberant nose with hints of eucalyptus, menthol, dark fruits, citrus zests and faded violets. The palate is heady and full-bodied with spicy notes and a finish on tight tannins.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

Located South of Santiago, the Central Valley is Chile's flagship winegrowing region. A combination of several factors, such as the semiarid climate, poor soils, a constant irrigation and a temperature gap between days and nights makes it an ideal region to grow wine.

Domain and appellation

    Established in 1892 by a Saint-Emilion winemaker, the winery carries the Casa Silva label since 1997. Driven by a family spirit and a pursuit of sustainable practices, Casa Silva keeps on receiving international awards for producing affordable premium wines.

     

    • Terroir: Stretched up to the Andes Mountains foothills on a sand, clay and decomposed granite soil, the Colchagua Valley benefits from a mediterranean climate and maritime breeze.

     

    • Viticulture: The vines used for this wine are historically from Saint-Emilion. The grapes are thus  sourced out from the winery’s own premium vines.
