Laberinto

In the foothills of the Andes, Rafael Tirado and his family cultivate 18 hectares of vineyards on the shores of Lake Colbun at 600m altitude, which were planted between 1993 and 2000. Soils are varied, including granite and volcanic ash, and yields are very low. Total production is just 25,000-30,000 bottles per year.

The coolest vineyards are planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, on slopes at different orientations because Rafael wanted to get away from the uniformity of Chilean viticulture. He ended up planting a vineyard as a labyrinth (laberinto) and hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels that symbolize the vineyards. The winery is entirely gravity-fed, for the ultimate in gentle handling of the wine.

This is a tiny project - especially by Chilean standards - and still in its infancy.  And yet the wines have already attracted high praise.  The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc was rated 96/100 by Decanter, and 94/100 by the Wine Advocate, whose reviewer, Luis Gutiérrez, calls it "the best value in the whole of Chile," and even compares it to the wines of Didier Dagueneau, which sell for five times as much.
