Casas del Bosque Late Harvest Riesling HALF

Casablanca, Chile

A perfect Christmas accompaniment and on offer!  A joy with a good dose of goat’s cheese or perfect with a lemon tart or poached pears – it’s light as a feather and a joy to enjoy!

Awarded Chilean Winery of the Year by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (2013 and 2014).

If you’re a fan of dessert wines, then look no further. This Riesling has all the virtues you would expect – racy with plenty of zing – and a lightness that dances on your tongue. There is simply no cloying on the palate with this wine.

The Casas del Bosque philosophy is quality over quantity – the best employees, who love their jobs, the purest fruit and the healthiest vines, a winning combo.

This half bottle should always serve well chilled.

Casas del Bosque Syrah Gran Reserva

Casablanca, Chile  –  this wine featured in our ‘Meet the Winemaker>’

In some ways, a tamed beast – in others, the coolest panther in the range… Gran Reserva Syrah joins the already hugely popular Reserva Cabernet and Reserva Carmenere. But this Syrah is for lovers of massive wines and will blow you away.

The aromas are instantly recognisable – blackcurrant through and through. The prevailing flavours are black pepper, tobacco, linseed and sweet violet. The structured tannins and vibrant acidity mean that this wine will develop for many years.

The producer’s philosophy is quality over quantity – the best employers, the best employees, the purest fruit and the healthiest vines – altogether a winning combination.

Grapes are grown in the coolest part of Casablanca with full sun exposure, so ripening is long and even.  16 days’ maceration on skins before and after fermentation, the winemaker wants maximum extraction and character.  The finished wine undergoes 100% French barrel ageing (one and two year old barrels), then bottled and rested for a further few months before release.

Awarded Chilean Winery of the Year by the International Wine & Spirit Competition in both 2013 and 2014 and now rated in the Top 50 Winery Destinations of Chile.

Best decanted before serving.

Casas del Bosque Carmenere Reserva 2019

Santiago, Chile

This wine featured in our ‘Meet the Winemaker’ virtual YouTube event – Take a look!

Awarded Chilean Winery of the Year by the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2012 and 2013, this producer never misses a beat.
When it comes to Casas del Bosque, it’s all about the rich, peppery, deep black fruit character. Medium to full-bodied, the fruit character and oak barrel ageing combine beautifully to produce a wine with soft, integrated tannins and a long, velvety finish. Deep flavours are reminiscent of black cherry, pepper and menthol and have to be savoured to be believed. This Carmenere is a real head turner.  Casas del Bosque’s philosophy is quality not quantity – the best employees, who love their jobs, the purest fruit and the healthiest vines.  A winning combo.  This latest 2019 vintage is every bit as good as the preceding vintages.  All it requires is a little aeration to really release those aromas and flavours.

Casas del Bosque Pinot Noir Reserva

Casablanca Valley, Chile

Awarded Chilean Winery of the Year Award in two consective years (2013 & 2014), this family-owned estate continues to pride itself on its eye for quality.  One of the first estates to be established in the now highly renowned Casablanca region, Casas del Bosque is positioned amongst pine forests and olive groves.  The name quite literally means ‘house of forests’.

The winery strives to produce wines in a thoughtful, non-invasive manner, working with organic materials where possible and ensuring a ‘quality over quantity’ ethos.  This Reserva Pinot Noir has all the attributes that you would expect – elegance, accentuated wild berry ripeness, spice and a firm acidity to ensure that it has the capacity to age elegantly.

Lightly chilled Pinot Noir is becoming increasingly popular on its own as an aperitif.

Casas del Bosque Sauvignon Blanc ‘Reserva’ 2021

We are delighted at the arrival of 2021 vintage.  A fresh explosion of citrus hits you between the eyes, closely followed by peachy suppleness. This wine has great roundness and is wonderfully expressive. Not surprising that it’s won a host of praise from those in the know. Casas del Bosque were awarded Chilean Winery of the Year in 2013 and 2014 (International Wine & Spirit Competition). This is a winery to be reckoned with that just gets better and better.

Enjoy well chilled as an aperitif.  We find the perfect accompaniment is goat’s cheese with beetroot on a cracker.

Perez Cruz Limited Edition Carmenere 2019

Maipo, Chile

SPOTLIGHT ON…

This week, we’re shining a light on this fabulous wine from the award-winning Perez Cruz winery.

The estate boasts some of the most stunningly kept vineyards in the Maipo valley, well worth a visit if you happen to be passing!

Their limited edition Carmenere is produced under the watchful eye of German Lyon, the resident winemaker whose mission is to ensure the estate’s wines reflect the characteristics of the land.  The vines grown on stony outcrops of soil (as in “piedmont’) and the resulting grapes are ‘triage’ed’ to keep the yields down and the flavour intensity up.

The wine imbues rich varietal flavours of red berries, liquorice, mint, spice and silky tannins, altogether providing a real ‘wow’ factor.

Carmenere was once one of the chief grape varieties used in Bordeaux.  When Phylloxera hit in the mid 19th century, Carmenere took a massive hit and arguably never really found its feet again in France.  These days, Carmenere is still used in Bordeaux blends, but only in small percentages.  Introduced into Chilean farms in the late 20th century, there is no doubting that Carmenere thrives in its new home, producing some of the classiest wines found throughout the wine world.

Perez Cruz sits alongside our other much loved Carmenere from Casas del Bosque, the latter in itself equally being an explosion of deliciousness!

Vinoir Carmenere 2020

Central Valley, Chile 

To compare this to our old favourite from Casas del Bosque, it has all the characteristics you love about Carmenere but this is a more delicate, lighter wine.

Dark red colour, elegant and fruity, with flavours of berries, plums, chocolate and pepper notes and that characteristic Carmenere smokiness.  The texture is round and silky and you are gifted with a delicious long finish.
