Organic Hand-harvested single vineyard estate Sauvignon Blanc.
92 Points VInous “This Sauvignon Blanc from Colbún in the Maule Andes has a bold, compact, grassy flavor ranging from peas to cabbage with lime and pink grapefruit. Neutral on the palate with solid freshness, the well-judged lees-work lends it fat in the mouth and tamps down the tension. Lingers energetically on the gums.” Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun, by a lake, in an eastern mountainous region of the Maule Valley. He began to plant vines in 1993 and now cultivates 5 separate sections totaling 18ha of vineyards within their 80ha property. The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash, and his vineyards are located at approximately 1800 feet altitude. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually planting a section as a labyrinth (laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels.
