Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
Its straw color introduces a fresh and exuberant nose of citrus zest and lemon. The palate is rounded, characterized, nervous and crisp.
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.
Do you know ?
Located South of Santiago, the Central Valley is Chile's flagship winegrowing region. Comprised of several different valleys -which each have their own climatic and geological characteristics-, the Central Valley is an ideal enclave protected on the east side by the Andes Mountains and on the west side by the Pacific Ocean.
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.
- Vinification: After cooling off, the grapes are crushed without any maceration and age for 24 days in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 13°C.
