Cenizas de Laberinto, Sauvignon Blanc
A silver-hued fox
A lively and wild nose of mountain herbs, fresh lime peel, tart white peach, and mixed together with river gravel.
An explosion of citrus fruits, mountain herbs and white peach, highly reflective of the nose, but with a tongue-curling acidity and long, long finish.
12.5% alcohol, 2015 harvest
Winery sample, no decanting.

More on the producer
Rafael Tirado is part of the best know winemaking twins in South America. His brother Enrique makes one of Chile’s most prized and expensive wines under Chile’s largest producer Concha y Toro, while Rafael has opted for the other end of the spectrum: boutique and under the radar, although just as complex. His vineyards are planted in a maze-like formation near Lago Colbun in Maule.
