A Chilean take on a classic Australian white blend from a pioneering 5th generation estate. With a whisper of oak for a touch of creaminess and its ripe tropical fruit and peach flavours, Casa Silva 2020 is a delightful mouthfilling white.
Casa Silva was founded by Emilio Bouchon, who travelled from Bordeaux to Chile in 1892. Now it’s run by Mario Pablo Silva, who has taken the estate to the upper echelons of Chilean wine. The estate has pioneered new regions in Chile and has been at the forefront of research into local viticulture, and you can taste that expertise and enthusiasm here. Chardonnay brings peachy fruit, while Semillon adds a zesty lemon tang. A small proportion of oak-aged Chardonnay rounds out the blend, bringing a richness of flavour rather than any overt spiciness. The result is a tasty white, full of tropical fruit and melon flavours, honeyed notes and freshness. Enjoy solo or with soft white cheeses, roast chicken, panfried salmon or fennel risotto.
"Wineries such as Casa Silva have figured out how to produce terrific wines at bargain price"
