Laberinto


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. The winery produces stunning expressions of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and a Bordeaux blend.

LABERINTO SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016

Laberinto Sauvignon Blanc 2016

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.

The wine shows crushed red fruit of raspberry and strawberry with hints of eucalyptus. Undertones of wet forest floor and baking spices of clove and cinnamon come through on the finish. The oak is well integrated and lets the soft, sexy, terroir driven fruit shine.
