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: The grapes were hand-harvested and underwent a low-temperature maceration to bring out the maximum colour and aromas. Then the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks followed by aging for 18 months in ultra-fine grain French oak barrels, 33% of them first use. Then the wine was bottle-aged for 8 months.
TASTING NOTES: Very intense and the oaky overtones and notes of chocolate from the barrel-ageing enhance the final complexity of the wine. It is a full-bodied, boldly-structured wine, which fills the mouth thanks to its fine tannins. Smooth and persistent in the finish.
