Las Huertas (Los Vascos) Chardonnay 2018, six bottle case

£76.50 £54.95

Vina Los Vascos was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1988. Baron Eric de Rothschild’s intuition that Los Vascos possessed the potential to produce fine wines has certainly been confirmed. The estates vineyard has increased somewhat since 1988 and now covers numerous plots and micro-climates, enabling the production of a range of wines and styles. This Chardonnay is created using fruit harvested from a cool valley north of Vina Los Vascos. The Las Huertas label is produced for on-trade sales in the UK. Despite the label differing visually, the wine is exactly the same as Los Vascos Chardonnay. As Waddesdon imports Los Vascos directly from the estate, we have access to the Las Huertas range when stocks of the Los Vascos label run dry.

Tasting notes

Flavourful, fresh and pleasant, this wine has an appealing character with good length of fruit. The nose offers an explosion of aromas with notes of melon, lemon peel, grapefruit and exotic fruit. The finish has a clean, fresh quality with a delicate nutty character. There’s an expression of purity and elegance typical of great Chilean Chardonnay, with a fair amount of body and weight too.
