Background

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, oriented towards the production of fine wine using and adapting the viticultural experiences of Bordeaux. 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. Daily on-shore winds provide temperature changes between 68-77°F, for optimum maturation of the grapes. With 1,581 acres planted on the over 10,000 acre estate, it is one of the largest vineyards in the central Colchagua valley, at the foot of Mount Cañeten.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Los Vascos is made up of a large diversity of soils. The heart of the estate, in the valley floor, consists of sand and clay alluvions left by the erosion of neighbouring granitic hills, as well as Tosca, a very hard soil made from volcanic ashes. Grapes are sourced from dedicated plots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that are tended to with a view to producing a great rosé. The beginning of the summer was cold, but temperatures gradually increased and remained very stable throughout the season, providing the ideal ripening conditions for the grapes and resulting in great balance and quality. The Syrah and Grenache were harvested together on March 9th, the Mourvèdre followed 2 weeks later, which allowed for must contact with the lees and to obtain a greater quantity of aromatic precursors and a rounder mouthfeel.

Winemaking & Aging

Grapes were harvested early in the morning, when temperatures were lower, in order to preserve the aromatic freshness of the grapes. At the winery, grapes were pressed directly and fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve their aromatic potential. The wine is aged in tanks to retain the purity of the fruit.

Tasting Notes

Delicate, pale pink color. The nose presents an aromatic explosion dominated by red fruits such as strawberry, ripe raspberry and pomegranate accompanied by notes of white peach and delicate floral hints. The palate is lively, fresh, fruity and silky with a long finish and great personality.

Points

A very subtle rosé here with just a hint of cream and white almond to the pomegranate and peach skins. Juicy and a little more citric on the palate with fresh acidity cutting through the round mouthfeel. Dry and more restrained and neutral. Direct pressing and skin contact for just two hours. 60% syrah, 30% grenache noir and 10% mourvedre. Drink now. Screw cap. -J.S.
