PRODUCER: Ventisquero began making wine in Chile in 2000. Today, the winery is led by a young, creative team of entrepreneurs who guide us to a single purpose: creating distinctive, high quality wines. Under the guidance of our head winemaker Felipe Tosso, the winery was built in the Coastal Maipo Valley, where grapes for our first wines were grown. Three years later, we ventured into the Casablanca Valley and the prestigious Apalta Valley, the source today for Viña Ventisquero’s premium wines. With estate-owned vineyards in Chile’s top wine producing areas Coastal Maipo, Casablanca, Leyda and Colchagua and extensive research to uncover the secrets of our country’s unique terroir, Viña Ventisquero seeks to produce wines of the highest quality and consistency.
WINEMAKING: It is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc that underwent a pre-fermentation maceration to extract maximum colour, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for eight months of which 33% are new barrels.
TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby colour. On the nose red fruits such as cassis and raspberries, subtle notes of chocolate, tobacco and black pepper. Well balanced wine with good acidity, soft tannins and long oaky finish.
