Wines of Chile / Casa Solís
Casa Solis Merlot
Casa Solís has sprouted from a seed in a far away land. A seed in sewn in 1952 with the Family Solis winery in Spain has grown from sapling into a fine tree. Now its own seeds take rootin a new land: Chile. Casa Solís is a union of past experience in an exciting new destination.
Wines of Chile continue the legacy of Spanish wine culture in the ‘New World’. The rugged and wild landscapes, with the currents of the Pacific to one side and the Andean slopes to the other, allow excellent climatic conditions for the cultivation of varieties brought from the Old World: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay which prosper with indigenous grapes like Carmenere.
Deep purple in color this wine has rich, fruit aromas. Flavours of ripe plum combine for a smooth and spicy finish.
Ideal to accompany dishes of legumes, game meats and stews
The ripening process of the grapes is strictly controlled while on the fields to determine the optimum harvesting moment that yields grapes with a perfect balance of sugar content and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 3 or 4 days. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for up to 8 days never over 25ºC. The result is an elegant, well-structured wine that is designed to be consumed young.
