Casa Silva “Cool Coast” Sauvignon Blanc 2011


I am a fan of Casa Silva wines and this offering from their Paredones Estate in Colchagua Valley centra Chile is a winner.

The nose is bracing fresh sea air, with shards of green pepper green gage plum & spicy minerals.

Palate is super green, leafy, more green pepper tinged with fresh citrus. There was a hint of vegetal character but didn’t find it unpleasant. Nice taught acidity and a smoky green asparagus finish.

If you are tired of NZ Sauv Blanc or want a classy alternative to Sancerre then do seek this out.

£15.49 a bottle or £14.27 per case from The Oxford Wine Company or £15.99 or Wine Rack has the 2010 for £15.99 a bottle 10% off when you buy 6
