Top Chilean producer Luis Felipe Edwards owns extensive vineyards including some in the outstanding, cool Leyda Valley. Working here with thrice ‘New Zealand Winemaker of the Year’ Matt Thomson, they produced the dazzling Pago Centro Sauvignon.
Some of the world’s very finest Sauvignon is coming from Chile’s coastal regions. Just taste the vibrant intensity of Pago Centro. Leyda Valley is one of the best and in recent years there’s been a scramble to buy land there. It lies just south of Casablanca, where cooling sea breezes and sandy soils produce crisp, aromatic whites. It is especially suited to Sauvignon Blanc. At the invitation of LFE’s head winemaker Nicolas Bizzarri, three times ‘New Zealand Winemaker of the Year’ Matt Thomson took charge of this wine’s vinification. Only the finest bunches of Sauvignon were cool fermented to produce an incredibly fresh white, with attractive, citrus minerality. Serve chilled with spicy Thai dishes, fish or a goat’s cheese tart.
"Crisp and refreshing. Loved this, quite a zingy taste but not overpowering. Definitely buy again"
