Casas del Bosque Reserva Carmenere

Chile, Casablanca

On the nose heady notes of cedar, bacon fat, and graphite with just a hint of fresh lavender. In the mouth, an initial attack of black cherry, sweet tobacco and cinnamon gives way to just a touch of earthiness and ripe bell pepper.”

Origin

Casablanca Valley, close to the Pacific coast, was Chile's first genuine 'cool climate' area, heralding a new wave of fresh, lively, modern styles, particularly Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Single vineyard selection planted between 1993 and 2008 on the eastern side of Casablanca Valley at an altitude of nearly 800 feet.

Carmenère fruit from different growers in the Rapel Valley, grown on the hillsides, overlooking the rivers Tinguiririca and Cachapoal, cropped at less than 10 tons/ha (4 tons/acre).

Grape Variety

100% Carmenere

Carménère, originally from Bordeaux is now being cultivated in significant quantities in Chile. Characterized by the presence of spicy notes, Carménère is the last of all our red grapes to ripen. It is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels before release.

Producer

Casas del Bosque was founded in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari and was one of the first wineries in the Casablanca Valley. Today it is still family owned and managed by the same family - and they have acquired around 245 hectares of vines in Santa Rosa district, on the west side of the Casablanca Valley. Plantings include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Carmenère and Pinot Noir - all drip irrigated from subterranean wells.

The Casas del Bosque philosophy is based on the constant search for excellence, aligned to the finest expression of each grape variety’s character and sense of place.
