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.
This dry white offers ripe tropical fruit, melon, cutgrass and notes of pear and lime – balanced with a good acidity and obvious freshness. T
Partner with roast white meats, poached fish, salads or even veal escallopes.
We pick the Sauvignon Blanc in the coolest part of the day and the grapes are pressed within 3 hours of picking. Fermentation takes place under controlled conditions in large steel thermo tanks and the wine ferments at a cool 18 degrees for around 19 days prior to racking and filtering, with storage before bottling.
