Grapes are received in small plastic crates and chilled for 2 days in a cold room to a temperature of 2°C. Whole grapes are pressed and the juice is clarified by natural (cold) decantation, after which a controlled fermentation at 12 – 13 °C takes place in stainless steel tanks. The alcoholic fermentation was stopped when the wine had a residual sugar of 8 g/l. Fermentation lees are worked right up to the time of bottling.
Where: Colchagua Valley, Chile
Grape: 100% Riesling
More about Casa Silva
The Silva family pioneered grape growing in the Colchagua Valley with the first vineyards back in 1892. Their cellar is the oldest in the valley, yet they strive to innovate in their vineyards and to pioneer new terroirs in the Colchagua Valley. They are paving the way for the Chilean Carmenere varietal by investing in research studies in their vineyards to study Carmenere clones and its microterroirs.
