Following fermentation the young wine was left for a few weeks on its gross lees (without stirring) before blending. After blending the wine was clarified, cold stabilized and filtered.

About the Winery:
Casas del Bosque is located 70 km from Santiago, the capital of Chile, and 30 km from one of the principal ports of Chile, Valparaiso. It was established in 1993 to be a family boutique winery exclusively oriented to the production of high quality wines. Casas del Bosque has its own vineyards in the Casablanca Valley with 235 hectares planted, exclusively dedicated to the production of cool-climate varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère come from the Maipo, Colchagua and Chachapoal valleys.

One of Casas del Bosque’s biggest strengths is its soil. In the hills, red clay composites of volcanic origin sit on top of decomposed granite layers formed 110 million years ago beneath the Pacific Ocean. This soil gives our wines the unique characteristic sea salt flavor.

The winery has been awarded the prestigious award of “Best Chilean Wine Producer” for 2 consecutive years (2013 and 2014) at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London, a well-deserved testament to our commitment to producing quality wine.
