"A lighter sauvignon but shows nice lemon rind and apple character. Medium body. Vivid and always delicious. Drink now."—J.S.

"Pale yellow color with glints of green. On the nose, aromas of fresh pineapple, pear, green apple and honeydew melon combined with citrus notes of grapefruit and lime, and hints of tarragon and thyme. The palate has exceptionally well-balanced acidity, with a pleasant coating sensation and good persistence."-Tasting Notes

"Los Vascos wines blend Lafite tradition with the unique terroir of Chile to create elegant wines that bring exceptional to the everyday. The vision of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) to expand their estate took them to South America in 1988, becoming the first French viticultural investment in modern Chile. Since then, a comprehensive modernization and investment program has been undertaken, oriented towards the production of fine wine using and adapting the viticultural experiences of Bordeaux and other areas where Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) is present. The vineyards are in the Casablanca Valley located further north between Santiago and Valparaíso, which is renowned for its great Sauvignon Blanc production as well as some in Colchagua Andes and the Leyda Valley."-Winery Notes

Summer Refresher - Great no-nonsense bottle. Crisp citrus and grassy notes when ice cold. Opens up to tropical and peachy tones when warmed up. Taking this to the clam bake.
5/5 stars
Good buy! - Given the connections it should not have been a surprise that this bottle was very much like a classy little sauv blanc from Bordeaux. Great nose, floral notes, decent fruit, pleasant mouth feel and finish. The price v. quality ration is outstanding. Brookie says buy more!

A great balanced white wine - We like a nice dry crisp wine and this certainly fits the bill. It's our go to white. BTW, their Chardonnay is also quite good and both are reasonably priced for the quality.

Great value - Lush, fruity white, great chilled for easy drinking in the summer. Not complicated but at this price it's about perfect.

Disappointing after past excellence - I dunno if the 2016 has fallen off or what but I used to love this wine. Now it seems harsh and thin. A disappointing decline, perhaps exclusive to this vintage.

Disapointed - I have been a fan of the Los Vascos label. I've never gone wrong on any of their reds. Based on the high rating and best value designation I thought I would try their Sauvignon Blanc. It just did not cut the mustard. There was nothing delicate about it. It was to harsh. But it was worth a try considering the Los Vascos track record.
