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.
Fruity and expressive with a red fruit character of strawberries and red cherries.
Serve as a delicious and fresh aperitif. Also the ideal accompaniment to a fruity desert...especially when strawberries and raspberries are included!
Pato Torrente comes from red grapes picked in the coolest part of the day, using a combination of Merlot, Pais yet dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The grapes are crushed and the clear juice is macerated on the pulp and skins of the red grapes as fermentation starts, with the wine picking up colour nd flavour over 2 days before the now pink juice is racked off to continue ferment in steel tanks at a cool termperature . the remaining juice with all the skins and pulp continues to ferment to make a deeply coloured red wine.
