The Silva family first planted vines in Chile's Colchagua Valley more than 100 years ago. Today Casa Silva is run by the 4th and 5th generations of the family and they still lead the way here with classy reds like this velvety, oaky Pinot Noir.
There aren't too many spots on the planet where Pinot Noir really excels. Burgundy and New Zealand's South Island spring to mind. But there is another, less known region blessed with perfect conditions for world class Pinot Noir: Colchagua Valley, Chile. The Silva family realised this many decades ago and now set the benchmark for outstanding Pinot Noir. They have four times won 'Winery of the Year', while Vitis named them 'Most awarded of the century'. Velvet smooth, it gives many a pricier Pinot a run for its money. Full of that classic red berry and spice complexity that fans of this grape adore, the wine spent a few months in French oak, which adds a further toasty richness to the ripe summer fruit. Excellent with creamy chicken dishes.
"Excellent. And a snip at the price"
