Country: Chile
Winery: Casas del Bosque
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes:

Pale straw with green reflections. This Sauvignon Blanc has elegant aromas of citrus fruit, boxwood and a hint of white flowers as well as Casablanca’s signature note of jalapeño. On palate, the wine is dry and crisp, with clean, citrusy flavors and a refreshing acidity. Finishes long.

Ideally served at 6 – 8ºC with seafood like ceviche, oysters or grilled fish. Herbs like lemon grass, cilantro or basil. Green olives, chutney and all kinds of goat’s cheese.

Winemaker Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc comes from Casas del Bosque´s own estate in Casablanca, making it a Single Vineyard wine. However, that concept does not mean it´s a “homogenous recipe”; on the contrary, the final blend benefits from a diversity of both rootstock and soils. With a mix of vines of approximately 70% clone UCD1, 20% clone 242, and 10% clone 107, as well as three distinct soils found throughout the vineyard (black clay, red clay loam and sandy loam soil of granitic origin), the real challenge here is to balance each component to achieve a consistent wine style.

After the 2021 harvest, the grapes were destemmed and crushed on a pneumatic press. The resulting juices were left to cold settle for 1-5 days before being racked to stainless steel tanks, inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented at temperatures between 12 and 18ºC. Following fermentation the young wine was left for a few weeks on its lees without stirring. After blending the wine was clarified, cold-stabilized and filtered. The first bottling occurred in early August, and the total production reached 25.000 cases.
