The latest trade newsletter from Casa Silva….
Last month we were delighted to announce news of our Lake Ranco estate. The first vintages have been released from what is officially Chile’s most Southernly vineyard. Initially the estate started out as a research project, but over the years the grapes have ripened to produce wines with great acidity and fruit flavour with relatively low alcohol…meaning the chance to release the wines was an opportunity too good to pass up!
We first planted Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at the site in 2006 and conducted experimental harvests in 2010 and 2011. The results showed us that the vines were maturing much slower than our other vineyards, making the physiological process a lot longer…Some seven years on from its beginnings, we have now launched our first vintages! Lake Ranco Sauvignon Blanc 2013 & Lake Ranco Pinot Noir 2013 are now available from our winery, they are exclusive to the Chile at present, but watch this space for details of the vineyards developments!
…. lets hope they find their way over to the UK sooner rather than later.
