Viña Luis Felipe Edwards

The history of Viña Luis Felipe Edwards (LFE) dates back to 1976, when Luis Felipe Edwards Sr. purchased the Fundo San José de Puquillay estate, located in the Colchagua Valley, a premier viticultural region in Chile. The estate sits nestled in a secluded horseshoe-shaped valley, separated from the majestic snow-capped Andes by the smaller San Fernando ridge. At that time, it was planted with 60 hectares of vines dating back from the beginning of the 20th century, consisting mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Carmenere and Merlot. In the early Nineties, Luis Felipe Sr. decided to make wine under his own name and so built a modern winery equipped with the latest state of the art techNology. The first vintage, Luis Felipe Edwards Cabernet Sauvignon 1994, was launched on the international market in late 1995 and is still drinking well to this day, a testament to the level of quality of LFE wines since day one.

Tasting Notes

Intense and bright ruby red in colour. The wine reveals aromas of plum and dark cherry, combined with spiced and toasted notes from oak barrel ageing. On the palate, the wine is weighty with firm tannins and the finish reveals dark fruit, coffee and light vanilla flavours. This is a wine with great character and body.

Food Matches

An ideal accompaniment to grilled meat, salmon and pork ribs.
