2011 Casa Silva Carmenere
Casablanca Valley, Chile
100% Carmenere. Microterroir is a wine made from a collection of micro-sites within the Los Lingues vineyard. Fruit harvested from each block was vinified separately to understand the impact of the soils and plant material (clones). Fermentations are a mix of wild yeast and innoculated lots. The wines were aged for 12 months in French oak before the winemaking team went through and selected and blended the best barrels. The wine spent two years in bottle before release. Intense ruby red with violet hues. On the nose, delicate aromas of red and black fruits with hints of coffee. On the palate, harmonious, with very good structure, soft tannins and notes of ripe red fruits, spices and a soft touch of black pepper. Long, lingering finish.
