We’ve been buying from this fine Chilean estate for nearly 20 years – and this brilliant, lightly tropical Sauvignon explains why. It comes from the Ossa family’s premium vineyards – irrigated by snowmelt and shaded by 1,000 year old palm trees.
"I found this to be really enjoyable, straight down the line. Fresh, zippy and clean"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
Owning one of the oldest estates in Chile, the Ossa family have worked hard over five generations to develop their vineyards, which produce Sauvignon of intense flavour. (Their richer soils, less favourable for vines, are used to grow Chile’s famous avocados and citrus fruit.) Given that the estate has in the recent past been voted ‘Best Winery in Chile’ and twice won the ‘Best Wine of Chile’ Trophy, you should expect an outstanding glassful here. You won’t be disappointed. In the hands of Viña La Rosa’s winemaker Gonzalo Cárcamo, this fabulous Sauvignon delivers intense freshness with crisp flavours of grapefruit, green apples and tropical fruit. It’s wonderful as an apéritif, or when paired with crab, grilled trout or mild Asian cuisine.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
