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 wine was aged for 22 months in 300-litre ultra-fine French oak barrels, 40% of them new and the rest second and third use. Then is was bottle aged for at least 14 months.
TASTING NOTES: Deep red with violet hues. The nose reveals black fruit, such as blackberries, intermingled with gentle spices, such as black pepper, damp earth, notes of native forest and a hint of graphite and soft spices. This wine has a firm structure and silky tannins. Its black fruit and spicy flavours, together with medium to high acidity lend it balance in the mouth and persistence in the finish.
