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.
Classic notes of ripe peach and juicy mandarin combine with a floral lift from the Marsanne to create this richly textured wine but refreshing wine.
Great with asian inspired dishes, try with Prawn Laska.
Christelle Guibert, Decanter Magazine, April 2017: "Predominantly Roussane, this is ripe with exotic fruit and honey aromas. The palate is rich, but the Marsanne adds freshness plus herbal and jasmine perfume. An exciting find for less than £10."
