From the bottle:
“Los Vascos, one of Chile’s oldest wine estates, is managed by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), who began a comprehensive modernization and investment program in 1988. The 560 – hectare vineyard is located in the Cañeten valley of the Colchagua province which offers a healthy microclimate for its ungrafted pre-phylioxera Bordeaux rootstock. Under the direct technical supervision of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), Los Vascos is committed to producing the finest consistent and balanced wines whose elegance and harmony are to be shared with connaisseurs around the world.
2010 Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley. That’s quite a mouthful! With that many words in a name it better be good right? And it is.
The 2010 Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc starts with aromas of tropical fruit, peach, and a little goosberry. The wine tastes of tropical fruit, peach, orange zest, and pineapple, with a small amount of vegetal notes as well. This wine has good minerality. The finish is a little on the tangy side and the flavors linger nicely. A nice, easy to drink wine.
