Casablanca Valley Wine

Casablanca Valley, Chile’s premier cool-climate coastal region, offers wine lovers an elegant style of wine that’s uniquely indicative of the area. Here, the focus is on varieties that thrive in cooler temperatures including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and a rising production of Syrah.

Casablanca is a relatively new region for wine production, as the first vines were planted just over 30 years ago in 1982 by Pablo Morande, the winemaking veteran from Concha y Toro. As a result, the region is just now coming into its own, eclipsing even the great strides it has already made. Recent soil analysis, experimentation of plantings on higher slopes, and a focus on matching the best varieties to the climate have given Casablanca an image of prestige and innovation that shows through in the wines.

In every sense of the term, Casablanca is a classic cool climate, coastal region – the average temperature in the summer is 25C (77F) which is significantly cooler than other parts Read more »

  • Montes Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Limited Selection 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Really very attractive on the nose with nicely layered roasted green chiles, a hint of jalapeno, cut grass ands sweet lemon and lime aromas. In the mouth this displays big acids up front supporting fresh and nuanced flavors of grapefruit and guava with some of the green herbal qualities emerging aromatically in the mouth. the texture is medium f...

  • Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Better IMO than most domestic Chardonnay's at a similar price level. Not light, but not a high alcohol, high price, stick of butter. Read More

    this may cause me to be a fan of this chardonnay as I am not known to like white wine as much as this cuvee suggests I should. after being chilled this wine proved to be very well crafted and worth every penny. Read More

  • Errazuriz Chardonnay Wild Ferment 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This Casablanca Valley Chardonnay was hard to resist - being of good provenance and marketed at a good price point. The nose has a strong citrus (grapefruit) notes with a hint of quince. On entry, there is anise, more grapefruit and cake spice; finish is warm and long. Typical of the region but more interesting. 88 points. Read More

  • Vina Leyda Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Classic Chardonnay on the nose with well judged oak adding vanilla and spice note to the core of pineapple and citrus fruits that pick up a touch of mango with air. A leading edge of creamy richness quickly gives way to tart acids that drive the green apple, pineapple, and lime flavors across the palate. This has some heft to it but the great ac... Read More

  • Apaltagua Chardonnay Unoaked Reserva Casablanca Valley Chile 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Almost gingery on the nose with real richness of ripe fruit all spicy apple, poached pear and grilled pineapple laced. This smells terrific and has some of the character of oaked Chardonnay coming from some of the creamy, leesy notes. Rich in the mouth, polished and round with bright, well integrated acidity lending the flavors, which verge on o... Read More
