Casa Silva Carmenere Riserva Colchagua Valley

Other Reds

Vintage: 2009
Description: With the discovery of Carmenere, the lost grape of Bordeaux, in Chile in the 1990's, the Silva family applied their 5 generations of working the land in the Colchagua Valley to further study, experiment, nurture and ultimately lead the work in mastering this somewhat finicky grape. In collaboration with the University of Talca's Vine and Wine Technological Centre, Casa Silva led by winemaker Mario Geisse—known in the region as the king of Carmenere, embarked on a three year study. This study, the first of its kind in Chile, was designed to determine scientific evidence of differing levels of quality in various locations of the valley. The findings of this "microterroir study" have paid dividends and resulted in a special Microterroir bottling which represents the best of the best in Carmenere.
