Casas del Bosque Reserva Chardonnay 2016
Beautiful pale straw in colour. On the nose aromas of walnut, ripe pear and pomegranate In the mouth a citrus backbone is fleshed-out by ample mineral notes finishing with a very subtle smokey/woody note. A bright, zesty acidity imparts excellent structure and length. Amazing with creamy cheeses, turkey and roasted chicken breast, pasta dishes with cream sauces, tuna fish Ceviche, salmon tartare and sushi.

Family owned winery Casas del Bosque was founded in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari. The son of an Italian immigrant, he had always dreamed of having his own vineyard and chanced upon an area of the Casablanca valley, 100k due west of Santiago, with its pine forests, olive groves and small, white abandoned adobe houses. He chose to name the winery Casas del Bosque, or “Houses of the Forest.” Winemaker Grant Phelps is evangelical about translating the character of the vineyard and grape in to the final wine, using longer than average skin contact to extract extra flavour from the grapes.
