Gran Reserva Chardonnay Casablanca

Gran Reserva Chardonnay Casablanca

Ref: A121915

Medium straw in colour. On the nose heady aromas of lemon tart and ripe pear combine effortlessly with rich notes of toasted almond. In the mouth quince and citrus dominate giving way to mealy yeasty notes and a rich, creamy finish. A lively, fresh acidity imparts excellent structure and length.

Alcohol: 14.4%

Casas del Bosque is one of Chile's top wineries and we are delighted to be importing a wide range of these excellent wines. Created in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari, the son of an Italian immigrant, this 245 hectare estate in nearly all situated in the premium wine region of Casablanca (although there are 13 ha. of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere in Rapel). The temperatures in the Casablanca Valley (situated just beyond the coastal mountain range) are amongst some of the coolest in viticultural Chile and it is not surprising that varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir do so well. The brilliant New Zealander, Grant Phelps, is in charge of wine-making and his philosophy is based upon using as little new oak as possible and where it is used, it is there to improve a wine's texture. The Riserva Sauvignon Blanc sees no oak but undergoes long, pre-fermentation skin contact, to help develop a wonderful aromatic complexity. The other Riservas and Gran Riservas see a judicious 'amount of oak-barrel ageing but it is the terroir and varietal fruit that are allowed to dominate in the final assemblage. These are amazingly pure and concentrated wines that reveal Chile's (and particularly Casablanca's) true potential.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
