Laberinto - Sauvignon Blanc 2022
Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun, by a lake, in an eastern mountainous region of the Maule Valley. He began to plant vines in 1993 and now cultivates 5 separate sections totaling 18ha of vineyards within their 80ha property. The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash, and his vineyards are located at approximately 1800 feet altitude. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually planting a section as a labyrinth (laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels. The winery produces stunning expressions of Sauvignon Blanc.
Wine Advocate: 95 Points
“The 2022 Cenizas de Laberinto Sauvignon Blanc is sharp and vibrant, with 12.6% alcohol, a pH of 3.04 and 8.77 grams of acidity. It wasproduced with grapes from vines planted in 1993 on volcanic ash soils. In 2022,Tirado macerated a bit more, looking for a little more structure. The winedidn't go through malolactic and was bottled after eight months with lees. This is sharp as a knife, with subtle aromas of meat broth and savory rather than floral or exotic, less varietal, complex, austere and mineral, with a rocky sensation.
