Exuberant aromas of fresh strawberries, rose petal and spice box. Lush and inviting on the palate, with ripe seductive red fruits and smooth tannins. Deliciously smooth Pinot with plenty of length and substance.
Really good Pinot at a great price is increasingly hard to find. Reasons: it takes a special climate and soil, it's a grape that's hard to grow well, tricky to vinify, and, finally, Pinot is "hot". The cool coastal region of Casablanca is Chile's answer to our Sonoma Coast, a perfect Pinot terroir. Medium-bodied, with aromas and concordant flavors of bright cherry and red berry fruit. Some tannin on the finish and good balance make it a surprisingly "complete" wine for the modest price.
|Rooted in the history of Chilean wine production, in 1982, Pablo was the first wine-producer to plant grapes in the Casablanca Valley. He was the first and only vigneron to farm this land over the next four years. Today the valley has over 4,000 hectares of vines. Many wineries in the country followed Pablo’s lead, to produce some of their best wines in Casablanca Valley.
A series of value driven wines from one of the most talented winemakers in South America, the wines of Casa Julia are made from sustainably farmed grapes from a few appellations, including Casablanca, Maipo and Rapel Valleys. From these appellations, Pablo has a variety of climates at hand, including plantings in high and low elevations, on the coast and in one of the most southern regions of Chile with a climate similar to Sonoma County, the Maule Valley.
