Winemaker's Notes:

50% from Angostura Estate, Colchagua Valley,a vineyard planted in 1912 from original pre-phylloxera vines brought from Bordeaux by the first generation of the family. 50% from Paredones Estate, first vineyard of the Cool Coastal hills of the Colchagua Valley, 8 kilometres away from the Pacific Ocean.

Pale yellow with green hues. On the nose, fresh and powerful, with notes of gooseberry. On the palate, citric, with excellent acidity and notes of bananas. Long, agreeable finish.

This refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect match for seafood dishes, especially oysters and scallops. Enchanting with salmon ceviche or Caesar Salad, it also tastes superb with asparagus or cream cheese. Enjoy it on its own too.

About Casa Silva:

Founded in 1892 by French wine pioneer and ancestor Emilio Bouchon, Casa Silva is now owned by Mario Silva and family - the fifth generation of winemakers. Many of the vines planted are over 90 years old, carried over from Bordeaux, pre-phylloxera, by the first generation. Previously selling their juice to larger, bulk wineries, Casa Silva began a bold, estate bottling program in 1997. Now, the Silva Family are viewed as leaders of the new generation of premium wine producers, and their wines have received international acclaim.
