Winemaker's Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc is clear and it has a bright color with slight greenish reflections. The nose is very expressive showing lemon, grapefruit and exotic fruit aromas combined with Sauvignon's typical boxwood. It is lively, very fruity and juicy featuring very good concentration. The dynamic lemony finish is more mineral than in preceding vintages, which contributes great finesse. It should be drunk now while still young and fruity, though it may age well for another two years.

"Los Vascos is fast becoming the leader in value-priced Sauvignon Blanc from the Casablanca Valley. This is the winery's best effort to date, and it delivers a chammption's blas of green apple and citrus aromas. The palate is lively as can be, and it houses fine but also defined lemon and lime flavors. Refreshing as a walk under a cascade; clean and scouring."

About Los Vascos:

Los Vascos traces its roots to approximately 1750 and to the original vineyard of Miguel Echenique. The vineyard passed down through the family throughout the succeeding centuries.

The acquisition of 50% of Los Vascos by Rothschild (Lafite) in 1988 was the result of a careful search among more than one hundred Chilean wines for one that could meet their criteria for excellence. A team of winemakers from Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) control the viticulture, harvest, maceration, fermentation and aging of the wines at Los Vascos. Strict control of yields from the estate and adherence to the winemaking techniques of Chateau Lafite result in wines of high quality, whose characteristics do not escape connoisseurs. All production is estate bottled.
