Casa Silva is one of the pioneering wineries exploring the coasts of the Colchagua valley in Chile, where it is much cooler than in the inland valley. The are planting Sauvignon Blanc and the Cool Coast Sauvignon Blanc is the result! I love this wine, the crisp striking acidity and refreshing notes of lemon, lime and just a hint of bell pepper give this a depth of character that is unlike many Sauvignon Blancs from around the world.
