From the multi-award-winning Casas del Bosque Chilean winery comes this stunning Chardonnay, 44% of which is aged in stainless steel and 56% in oak. A mouth-wateringly good, balanced style with crisp, juicy fruit flavour. Intensely aromatic, you might find hints of nuts and lime zest, leading to a rich, full palate with flavours of buttery brioche. One for the roast chicken.

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.

The Winemaker

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.
