Casa Silva’s Coleccion Carmenere is a fantastic advert for the potential of the Carmenere grape in Chile. It has a gorgeous aroma and a wonderful mixture of red and black fruit aromas, tobacco, mint and eucalyptus. Soft and juicy on the palate with fresh cherry notes coming through on the long finish.
In 1997, Mario Pablo Silva made a proposal to his father: he wanted to transform his bulk wine business which had been owned by the Silva family since 1892 into a prestige bottling company for export, bearing the family's own name. Mario Silva accepted his son's challenge and Casa Silva was created. In a short space of time, Casa Silva has become one of the most prestigious and awarded producers of premium Chilean wine. They have a pioneering spirit and own enviable vineyard sites throughout the Colchagua region which they match up to individual grape varieties.
