This is the much loved Sauvignon from the century-old Tarapacá estate, showered every vintage with 5-star reviews. That's partly due to high up vineyards that put the Sauvignon aromatics and zesty lemon fruit on full volume. Thoroughly refreshing.
"Always enjoyable. An excellent Sauvignon Blanc, suitable for all occasions"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
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 ...

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
