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.
This refreshing Sauvignon Blanc has flavours of citrus, melon and herbs as well as a crisp, clean finish.
Serve with fish, seafood dishes and salads.
The grapes are sourced from both the Central and Rapel regions and harvested in the main by machine, often picked at night to maintain freshness and vibrancy. the grapes are de-stemmed at the winery in the first few hours and the grapes cold soaked prior to pressing to produce a clear juice with lowest possible phenol levels. The alcoholic fermentation took place at 14-16°C during 10-15 days all within steel tanks. Ageing on fine lees for 3 months prior to bottling.
