Casa Silva, Micro Terroir Carmenere, Los Lingues, 2011
(at Decanter's Fine Wine Encounter 2018, Shanghai, 17 Nov 2018)
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2026
This is the result of the Silva family’s exacting search for terroir expression in its Los Lingues Vineyard in Colchagua. The micro-plots are carefully selected parcels of Carmenere fruit, which provide a distinctive smoky, spicy character to the wine. This 2011 still has some puppy fat to shed but is developing nicely, with generous black fruits and a savoury tapenade finish. Lovely ripeness, depth and length.
