For £6 and just over, on promo, this was my best value for flavour wine of the Majestic press tasting.
This has a smooth, silky texture, with violet perfume and charcoal-roasted plums amid soft, sweet tannins. This is an attractively straightforward wine. Its primary fruits have good volume in the mouth, it’s nicely balanced and the alcohol is cleanly integrated. The wine is succulent, immediate and juicy. Great for uncomplicated, everyday drinking.
Luis Felipe Edwards was established only in 1976, and is named after its founding father. The producer has quickly emerged onto the export wine scene. They have vineyard holdings in the respected Colchagua and Leyda valleys, though the fruit for this competitively priced wine (when on promo) comes from the Central valley.
