Casablanca winery visits: Quintay
February 11, 2016
The winery is right on Ruta 68; we always welcome people who just pop in on their way to the coast for a glass of wine. Visitors can also buy our wines at special prices, including our sparkling wine and our Sauvignon Blanc “Experience”, which are only available at our winery shop.
Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Beautiful nose with herbal and asparagus notes. Fresh, acidic and long.
Clava Sauvignon Blanc Clava 2015
A more fruity and lighter-bodied Sauvignon Blanc featuring pineapple and peach notes among the classic citrus aromas. Very refreshing.
Clava Chardonnay 2014
Stone fruit and banana aromas; delicious in the mouth with fresh acidity. Long finish.
Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2014
Herbal note among the fruit. The oak influence comes through in the complex and silky mouthfeel. This is a well-balanced wine with refreshing acidity and a pleasing texture.
Clava Pinot Noir Rosé 2015
Copper-coloured with an intriguing nose of prunes and a slight floral hint. Drier than the nose suggested, fruity and light. Very refreshing.
Clava Pinot Noir Red 2014
A spicy nose with notes of forest floor, raspberry leaves and black tea. Fairly tannic in the mouth, acidic and that hint of forest floor present again.
Gran Reserva Pinot Noir 2012
A different beast this; clearly older with almost orange hues. The nose is more intense, with some jammy notes and prunes. Nice mouthfeel, quite acidic and that hint of dried fruit present again.
Gran Reserva Syrah 2013
Very strong meat and smoke influence in the nose; close your eyes and you’ll think you are right by the barbecue. Big and tannic with lots of cigarbox and smoked bacon notes. Needs to be served with food.
