Another stunning wine from Casas del Bosque made in cool climate Casablanca Valley, this is aged in oak for six months to round out the vibrant fruit. It's packed with summer pudding fruits leading into a palate of rhubarb and red cherries layered with silky smooth tannins. Try this with white meats, medium spiced curries or earthy vegetarian dishes.

Buy this if...you love silky, supple fresh reds.

'The lush, scented, ripe Casas del Bosque Pinot Noir from Chile must be one of the best bargains at the whole show.' Oz Clarke, Three Wine Men, Oct 2017

The Producer

Family owned winery Casas del Bosque was founded in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari. The son of an Italian immigrant, he had always dreamed of having his own vineyard and chanced upon an area of the Casablanca Valley, 100k due west of Santiago, with its pine forests, olive groves and small, white abandoned adobe houses. He chose to name the winery Casas del Bosque, or “Houses of the Forest.” The winemaking team are evangelical about translating the character of the vineyard and grape in to the final wine, using longer than average skin contact to extract extra flavour from the grapes. Some vineyards are under organic management and the winery is currently beginning the process towards Wines of Chile Sustainability Certification, which is the first step on the way to organic certification.

Winemaking

The winemaking team at Casas del Bosque work with consultant winemaker Grant Phelps. Grant arrived at the winery in 2010 although his winemaking experience in Chile stretches back over 14 years. Making wine since the age of 20, following a MSc in Viticulture and Oenology (he claims to have been breast-fed Sauvignon Blanc), Grant has worked his way through much of the winemaking world, including stints in his homeland of New Zealand, Australia, France and California.

The Region

Chile’s winemaking history goes back over 460 years, despite a relatively recent introduction to UK wine drinkers thanks to reliable, well priced wines from recognisable grape varieties. Sandwiched between the Pacific and the Andes, its dry, warm climate enjoys high temperatures which are moderated by the cooling effects of these two great forces of nature. The Casablanca Valley is a real deal ‘cool-climate’ region, a current buzz word among wine lovers which to denote a (generally) New World wine region which enjoys a more European style climate and therefore wines

Pinot Noir

In the Press: 'The fruit for this wine comes from the cool Casablanca Valley, near Santiago, home to Chile’s best pinots. There are very jammy, rich, dark cherry aromas; an almost meaty savoury palate and a good bit of structure and tannin for a pinot noir. It’s an interesting version of Chilean pinot at this price – it would make an unusual alternative for those who usually buy Conosur'.

BBQ Chicken on Flat-Bread with Cucumber Pico de Gallo

This spicy chicken recipe makes a quick and easy lunch or supper. Try pairing with light, fruit-driven reds which will contrast nicely with the zingy notes of chilli and lemon.

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Match the delicate scallops and smoky bacon with a mineral, medium-bodied white or a soft, juicy red such as Pinot Noir which will contrast with the saltiness in the dish.

Rosemary Roast Turkey

Not just a Christmas classic. The mix of light and dark meats and herbaceous rosemary make this dish the perfect match for medium or light-bodied reds and oak aged whites.
