Casa Silva's Lago Ranco is harvested from the first vineyard ever planted in the Lake District of Patagonia; pioneered and planted by Casa Silva in 2006.
Elegant and expressive on the nose with fruity notes of lime, pear, green pepper, interspersed with intense freshness from Lake Ranco and the Andes. Rich and elegant on the palate with a lingering acidity and mineral notes.
The expressive acidity and fruit notes are the perfect pairing for seafood including oysters, crab and hake.
The 2016 Lago Ranco Sauvignon Blanc from Casa Silva is sourced from a completely different region where the grapes ripen slowly and later, one of the southernmost vineyards in the Osorno Valley in the Chilean Patagonia. There is a lot more freshness here and more pungent, herbal aromas. There's also a different sense of acidity, perhaps because of the lower alcohol (it has 1% less alcohol than the whites from Colchagua), and the wine feels more vibrant. This has extremely low yields—some 3,500 kilos per hectare—but very variable from one year to the next, because the temperatures at flowering time tend to be quite low. 2,666 bottles produced.The Wine Advocate April 2017
A tangy white with sliced lemon and slate character. Steely. Fresh and clean.James Suckling May 2017
The vineyards are planted on small hillsides of the Osorno Valley facing Lake Ranco, creating a special microclimate for the production of vineyards. The hillside is comprised of the volcanic soil trumao, which has a high water retention capacity. Grapes are hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 12-13 ° C. All Casa Silva wines are certified sustainable through Vinos de Chile
