casa silva - chile - tasting notes

casa silva in the colchagua valley is a wonderful winery, it's just too bad our tour guide treated us like cattle...

here below are tasting notes for 2 out of 3 wines tasted during our visit, they are based on the wset systematic approach to tasting for diploma level:

sauvignon gris 2007

medium intensity aromas, elegant (soft & round) grassy notes with white peach, melon, white flower, touch of pineapple; medium (-) acidity, medium body & alcohol, medium intensity flavours of grass, citrus, apple, medium lenght with complex finish. sharper on the mouth than on the nose.

los lingues gran reserva carmenere 2005

medium (+) intensity aromas of round red forest fruits, savoury, coffee, chocolate, with a touch of mint, spicy, complex; medium (-) acidity, medium (-) ripe tannins, medium body, medium (+) alcohol, mediume (+) intensity flavours of savoury forest fruits, spices, coffee, chocolate, surprisingly short lenght and simple finish for so much going on the nose and on the palate.
