Winemaker Notes

Pale straw color with green reflections. Coming from a cold and cloudy summer, the ripening process was very slow, which shows on the high concentration of aromatic precursors on the grapes. Notes of grapefruit, boxwood and guava mix with floral and even some pyrazine notes. On palate there is a remarkable and refreshing acidity, typical of a cool climate sector like Las Dichas. A clean and high defined wine that perfectly characterizes the 2021 vintage.

Critical Acclaim

JS 90
James Suckling
Sliced green apples, lime zest, gooseberries, melon and fennel on the nose. Medium-bodied with a juicy, fruity palate. Creamy texture. Fresh and balanced.
WS 89
Wine Spectator

A fresh white, with orange blossom and lemon peel leaping from the glass, joining flavors of Manila mango. The juicy finish features subtle cream and peppery notes.

Casas del Bosque winery and vineyards are located in the Casablanca Valley. At just over 900 ft above sea level, and about 12 miles inland from the Pacific, the climate is ideal for producing cool climate wines; the estate vineyards are planted to Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Pinot Noir. The Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon red wines come from the Rapel and Maipo valleys where they contract specific vineyards sites for their wines.


About the Winemaker - Meinard Jan Bloem

Meinard was born and grew up in The Netherlands. He arrived in Chile in 1995, and very quickly decided to make it his new home. He now regards himself as more Chilean than Dutch. He decided to become a winemaker and went to study at the Universidad Católica in Chile, where he graduated as best student in the history of his Faculty. After completing his study in Santiago he went to Montpellier and Geisenheim (Germany) to obtain a Master’s Degree in Viticulture and Enology. He also had the chance to work with such renowned people in the world of Pinot Noir as Greg La Follette, Stefan Dorst (Weingut Friedrich Becker) or Sylvain Pitiot at the famous Domaine du Clos de Tart in Burgundy. In Germany he trained at Weingut Dr. Bürklin-Wolf, producing some of the worlds best dry Rieslings. 

Having worked several years at a small vineyard and winery, running everything from viticulture to sales, in 2016 he was ready for a bigger challenge. Having been called by Tim Atkin MW one of “the younger generation of winemakers [that] is taking the country to new levels,” and since the only two Sauvignon Blancs he had ever made are still amongst the 10 best from Chile according to Wine Spectator, the decision to hire him at Casas del Bosque was an easy one. He’s one of the few winemakers in Chile who feel more confident in the vineyard than in the cellar, is fluent in six languages and in his free time enjoys riding -and occasionally crashes- a motorcycle.

A region that has become synonymous with some of the best whites of Chile, the Casablanca Valley is full of dozens of bodegas who either grow fruit here or come from outside to source from local growers for their own white wine programs. The valley runs from east to west, which means that its westernmost vineyards receive the most cooling influence from the reliable afternoon sea breezes. The soils also tend to be heavier in clay in the west, whereas the eastern end of the valley is warmer and its soils are predominantly granitic. Sauvignon blanc thrives here, Chardonnay does well and Pinot noir is not uncommon.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
