Chile is one of the ‘go to’ destinations for Sauvignon Blanc. Its wines have classic elegance balanced by lovely ripe citrus fruit. Just what you’ll find in crisp, aromatic Viña Tarapacá – one of our bestselling Sauvignons, from a century old estate.
"Not normally a Sauvignon Blanc fan but this is excellent. Best I’ve ever had"
Online Review for 2014
This hugely popular white shows that Chilean Sauvignon Blanc offers both excellent quality and “fantastic value for money” (Peter Richards MW, Decanter). Viña Tarapacá in the Maipo Valley was founded in 1874 by a successful businessman, Don Francisco de Rojas y Salamanca. He imported noble grape varieties from France and created a magnificent estate with high altitude vineyards cooled by breezes off the Pacific. In addition, the property has a pristine winery equipped with the latest cool fermentation technology – essential for crisp, modern whites. Crafted by top winemaker Sebastián Ruiz Flaño, this wine is powerfully aromatic with rich citrus intensity. It’s a most refreshing apéritif and suits spicy fish dishes and Far Eastern 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
