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.
Fresh aromas of lime and grapefruit with hints of green herbs. The palate has a wonderful crisp acidity and a delicate mineral character that lingers through to the finish.
Ideally paired with sea food, white meat or serve on it's own as an aperitif.
Made in traditional style for white wine. Grapes are hand harvested during the night and morning hours. Upon reception at the winery the juice is fermented for 25 days at 12-13° C in stainless steel tanks.
