Rafael Tirado - Sauvignon Blanc Laberinto 2019


Notify me when this product is available:

Rafael Tirado purchased land in the Eastern Maule Valley in the front range of the Chilean Andes and planted his first estate vines in 1993 on volcanic ash over granite.  He currently has six parcels totaling 23ha of vines.  His vineyards are legally recognized to be located within the Colbun D.O. and he is currently the only producer in the D.O.  Many of his vines are planted in various orientations, some of which are planted in the shape of a labyrinth.  Rafael built a small gravity fed winery and geothermal barrel and bottle room on the property, and currently produces estate wines under the Laberinto and Vistalago labels.  

This hand harvested, single vineyard, 100% estate Sauvignon Blanc is from vines that Rafael Tirado planted himself in 1998. This SB has a bright nose with Guava, passion fruit, and lemon leading to a mineral mid palate and soft undertones of crushed rock. The volcanic ash from the vineyard adds to this minerality and sustained finish. The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in 100% stainless steel which leads to a very juicy and refreshing wine.
