Special Selection Sauvignon Blanc

Viña Los Vascos
In the land of Los Vascos, cultivation is at our heart; cultivating not only vineyards but our dream to transform our vast land into a fruitful eco-system producing the most elegant Chilean wines. We are free spirited but remember our heritage. Our holistic approach encompasses and protects all - from our short-legged sheep clearing weeds without devouring precious grapes to our artisans honing hand-made knives to carefully tend the vines. We embody the Chilean paradox, meticulous in our work, easy going and warm in our personality. We are independent yet proud to cultivate our community because we are stronger and happier together.

The vintage
The season was marked by severe frosts in early September that eased over the spring.
Unlike other years, the early morning mists were less prevalent.
December and January were very hot, but temperatures dropped gradually from February onwards.
The high temperatures prompted an early harvest and lower yields, mostly due to smaller, lighter bunches, which in turn resulted in higher concentration and quality.
The wine
The Sauvignon Blanc made at Los Vascos comes from grapes purchased on long term contracts from both the Casablanca and Curicó areas. The vintages all share liveliness on the palate with pure fruit flavour. Remarkable aromatic expression in the bouquet with lemon, grapefruit and exotic fruit enhanced by the of characteristic boxwood aroma of Sauvignon.


Au nez, l’expression aromatique est remarquable : citron, pamplemousse et fruits exotiques rehaussée par l’arôme de buis caractéristique du Sauvignon.

Tasting notes
Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc 2017 presents a pale yellow color with glints of green, very characteristic of the variety. Aromas of melon, green apple, pineapple, and lime are underscored by spicy, herby notes such as lemongrass and lemon verbena. On the palate, this wine reveals great volume and structure. Best served cold, between 10 and 12ºC.
