Casa Silva Microterroir Carmenere is one of Chile’s best examples of this fantastic grape. The wine really shows the potential of both the grape and the region. It is delicate yet intense on the nose with aromas of red and black fruits, cassis, mulberry along with hints of coffee and mocha. In the mouth it is harmonious, with a very good structure, soft tannins and notes of ripe red fruit, spice and a soft touch of black pepper. Long and elegant 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 allows them to produce some of Chile’s best terroir driven wines at all price points.

The winery has become one of Chile’s finest producers of Carmenere over recent years. The Microterroir and Los Lingues have won numerous awards and are widely regarded as two of the finest examples of Carmenere from Chile. Never one to stand still, they now produce sparkling wine, Riesling, Sauvignon Gris, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cesar Noir. We are going to need a bigger warehouse if they carry on like this!
