Winemaker's Notes:

Bright, clear straw color with pale green tints. Crisp aromas of citrus, gooseberry. Well-balanced, with mineral flavors and melon on the finish. This wine is a great aperitif and well-suited for shrimp or salmon carpaccio. It also complements main courses such as seasoned fish and Mediterranean salad, or with light cheeses.

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.
