Casablanca Valley, Chile
Chile has come a long way in recent decades in producing fine, high-quality wines. The natural climates are a big part of Chile’s success in the wine world. Cool ocean breezes and bright sunny days are a prefect combination for growing grapes throughout a long season. This allows grapes that are planted to optimize these conditions to develop full flavors and ripeness. As more acres of land are planted with vines in Chile, grape growers are learning which varietals work best in the various microclimates throughout this long country, and are developing their own sense of terroir
. Casa Julia Estate wines are produced with this in mind. Start with high quality fruit from ideal regions, and vinify the grapes to get a fresh wine that reflects the individual characters. The soils generally are clay and loam, with volcanic material that provides a nice strain of mineral notes to the wines. All the wines at the estate are temperature-controlled fermented in stainless steel to preserve the vibrant fruit and acidity of the wines. A touch of French oak adds depth and structure to the red wines while they are aged for a short time in barrels. The result: smooth, fruit forward wines with true varietal expression.
A rich, lush, vibrant Chilean Sauvignon Blanc with no oak - just crisp, tropical flavors. On the nose melon, asparagus, grass, and bell pepper. Lively on the palate, with hints of lemon zest, kiwi, grapefruit, melon, and citrus. On the end finish peach pit, watermelon rind, and crispy vegetable. A very versatile white.
