WINE OVERVIEW

S38 marks a single, small soil block in Casa Silva’s iconic Los Lingues vineyard. Years of intensive soil studies and micro-vinifications have shown that the S38 grapes produce world-class Cabernet Sauvignon with outstanding freshness, balance and depth from its deep, stony soils. This limited production wine offers an exclusive taste of this “Gran Terroir” at the foothills of Chile’s Andes mountains.

An intense and deep ruby color with aromatic notes of red fruits and spices. The wine has a powerful entry, silky tannins, balanced acidity, pleasant mouthfeel and an elegant and persistent finish.

TECH DETAILS

Grapes are 100% hand harvested in small trays. The grapes pass through a selection table before and after de-stemming, then gravity fed to small oak tanks and fermentation barrels. After a cold maceration for 10 days, the alcoholic fermentation is carefully conducted at 26-28 ° C. Malolactic fermentation is made in barrels. The wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months. The best barrels of this block are selected by tasting and blended afterward. Bottling time has to be at least one year before release into the market.
