Press Tasting Note
An archetypical pale straw-yellow color, along with green hues. This wine has an expressive, vigorous nose where green chili, asparagus and passion fruit abound. The palate showcases a good tension of excellent acidity, a mouth-watering feeling, and a persistent aftertaste that calls undoubtedly for another glass. As you delve more into the wine, the wonderful minerality takes hold and burst open.

Los Vascos

View all from Los Vascos
Los VascosLos 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. Los Vascos is located in Valley de Caneten (Colchagua), a closed valley in the central zone of Chile, approximately 25 miles from the sea. The valley provides a perfect microclimate for high quality viticulture, with Northern exposure to lands uncontaminated by airborne or water-borne pollutants. Daily on-shore winds provide temperature changes between 68-77°F, for optimum maturation of the grapes.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

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."

L.d.

"Delicious summer wine! Has a nice edge and lots of body (I don't like watery wine, for example, in reds, I like cab or blends)."

Brett

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!"

William

Crisp, a little citrusy but not quite as much grapefruit as New Zealand wines

"Excellent"

Edward

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."

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."

William

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."
