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 red colour and a complex nose of red fruits. Full of blackberry, cassis and black cherry flavours, coupled with notes of tobacco and cedar. The ageing of the wine for 18 months in French oak barrels gives the wine a wonderful elegance, soft tannins and a good concentration.

Food Matches

Try with grilled and smoked red meats, roasted venison, or mature cheddar cheese.
