Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc


 Los Vascos’ Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes purchased on long term contracts with growers in the Casablanca Valley. The vintages all offer very pure fruit and a lively, refreshing palate.

This wine has remarkable aromatic expression in the bouquet with lemon, grapefruit and exotic fruit enhanced by the characteristic boxwood aroma of the Sauvignon.

Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca


  • Vintage 2017

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    The season was marked by severe frosts in early September that eased over the spring.
    Unlike other years, the early morning mists were less prevalent.
    December and January were very hot, but temperatures dropped gradually from February onwards.
    The high temperatures prompted an early harvest and lower yields, mostly due to smaller, lighter bunches, which in turn resulted in higher concentration and quality.


    Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc 2017 presents a pale yellow color with glints of green, very characteristic of the variety. Aromas of melon, green apple, pineapple, and lime are underscored by spicy, herby notes such as lemongrass and lemon verbena. On the palate, this wine reveals great volume and structure. Best served cold, between 10 and 12ºC.

  • Vintage 2016

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    The season started with low temperatures but without any frosts, leading to a late harvest and lower yields, which was nevertheless favorable since the lower the yield, the higher the concentration and the quality.

    There was abundant rain during the harvest, however, an effective harvest strategy during the dry periods and efficient pre-harvest management enabled good quality grapes to be obtained.


    Bright greenish yellow color. Fruit aromas of ripe pineapple, peach, pear, and melon combined with notes of lime, tangerine, lemon verbena, lemongrass, spearmint, chamomile, and orange blossom. Good volume on the palate, with a balanced, long mouthfeel. Best served cold, between 10 and 12ºC.

  • Vintage 2015

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    A frost-free spring with warm temperatures gave way to a rainless summer with historical peaks of 39.6° C during March. In the spring, light rains helped to retain the soil’s moisture without affecting the grapes. Total rainfall between May and August was 418 mm.


    Pale yellow colour with glints of green. The nose offers aromas of fresh pineapple, pear, green apple and honeydew melon combined with citrus notes of grapefruit and lime, and hints of tarragon and thyme. The palate has exceptionally well- balanced acidity, with a pleasant coating sensation and good persistence. Serve chilled between 10 and 12ºC.

  • Vintage 2014

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    2014 was marked by early spring frosts that were particularly detrimental to the Casablanca Valley, where both yields and production dropped. Bunch and grape size were smaller; however, concentration was higher. The wines present excellent quality, with a fruity character, intense aromas, great sweetness-to-acidity balance, and a round mouthfeel.


    Light yellow color with hints of green. Fruity notes of pineapple, pear, green apple, passion fruit, and honeydew melon that blend with notes of green chili, lemon verbena and interesting mineral hints. In the mouth, a remarkably balanced acidity delivers beautiful freshness.
    Varietal typicity is outstanding both in the bouquet and the palate.
    Recommended for consumption while still young or within 2 years from now. Ideal as an aperitif, although it also displays its full potential when paired with seafood, sushi or salads.
    Best served cold between 10º and 12ºC.

  • Vintage 2013

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    The spring was particularly cool in Casablanca this year. Temperatures were low at the beginning of the summer, with cloudy skies, resulting in a late start to the ripening stage. This delay continued until the harvest, and picking had to be delayed two full weeks in order for the grapes to reach optimal ripeness.
    These weather conditions are reflected in this fruity 2013, with slightly more marked herbaceous notes, lower alcohol content and higher acidity.

    Tasting notes (at bottling)

    Pale yellow tinged with green.
    The nose offers an abundance of fruit, in particular notes of white peaches, pineapple, lychees, pears, green apple, melon and lime, with a few herbaceous notes such as sage and fennel, and a hint of green pepper. The palate is fresh and develops with a balanced, persistent acidity.

    Drink young to fully appreciate the flavours.
    Serve as an aperitif, or to experience this wine at its full potential, enjoy with seafood or a gourmet salad. Serve chilled, between 10 and 12°C.

  • Vintage 2012

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    A spring with little rain and warm temperatures that gradually increased towards the summer kept the vines in good health and promised a good quality harvest.

    The absence of frost during the spring ensured an excellent bud break, flowering and setting of the fruit. The grapes ripened slowly, which fostered balanced acidity and optimal concentration of sugar.

    The grapes were hand-picked very early in the morning to preserve their flavours and aromas. The harvests started in Casablanca, continued in the Colchagua Andes and ended in the Leyda Valley.

    Tasting notes (at bottling)

    Yellow colour with glints of green. The nose offers a range of aromas from plant notes of fresh grass, chives, boxwood, asparagus, and lemon verbena, to fruit notes of lychee, pear, pineapple, and green apple.
    Fresh mouthfeel with delicate acidity and good length.

    To fully appreciate this wine, we recommend drinking it when it is still young.
    It is perfect as an aperitif, but to experience its full potential, serve with seafood or a salad. Best served cold between 10 and 12ºC.

  • Vintage 2011

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    The 2011 vintage was characterized by low rainfall and below-average temperatures. A frost-free spring enabled a healthy bud break, blooming and setting of the fruit.
    Moderate temperatures during the summer and autumn allowed the grapes to ripen slowly resulting in good aromatic precursors and well-balanced acidity.
    The grapes mainly came from Casablanca and to a lesser extent from the Colchagua Andes and Leyda regions; the harvests were supervised directly by Viña Los Vascos’ technical team in order to ensure quality.


    tasting notes (at bottling)

    Pale yellow colour with glints of green. The nose expresses a complex range of aromas, in particular lime, white peach, pear, pineapple, green apple, and subtle notes of chives. Fresh mouthfeel, good volume, and nice length. This wine should be drunk young as aperitif, or to appreciate its full potential, enjoy with seafood or salad. Serve cold, between 10 and 12ºC.


  • Vintage 2010

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    Low temperatures during spring produced less and smaller clusters, thereby reducing yields per hectare but providing extraordinary concentration.
    During the harvest months, temperatures remained low, causing slow ripening but better preservation of the fruit’s acidity and the aroma precursors. The majority of grapes came from the Casablanca Valley with lesser quantities being sourced from the foothills of the Andes in Colchagua and Leyda. In these areas, the Los Vascos technical team closely supervised the harvests to obtain the best possible quality, and optimal ripeness.

    tasting notes (at bottling)

    This wine is characterized by its soft yellow colour with green highlights. The nose expresses a complex range of aromas such as lime, white peach, prickly pear, pineapple, green apple, lychee and mango. Also some notes of chives and boxwood. The palate is consistent, lively and fresh with good volume and a remarkable length.

    Excellent as an aperitif, it is also very good with seafood and salads. Served cold between 10 and 12ºC.


  • Vintage 2009

    • 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    After a cold winter and fairly dry spring, the grapes were of excellent quality with a good degree of ripeness.

    tasting notes (at bottling)

    Light yellow colour with beautiful glints of green. The nose presents the traditional and ‘wild’ aromas of Sauvignon Blanc with good expression of boxwood, undergrowth and fruit (pineapple, lime, green apple and white peach). In the mouth the wine is fresh, juicy and balanced with good length. The grapes from Casablanca and Leyda bring a fruity, mineral note, while those from the foothills of the Andes give the wine structure and a creamy texture.
