Ventolera is an exciting new venture between founder Vicente Izquierdo and one of Chile's top winemakers Stefano Gandolini. The vineyard, which was planted in 1999, is located in the region of the Leyda Valley, just six kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. The area is being singled out as being Chile's newest and most radical cool-climate wine region, which is strongly influenced by the cooling effects of the Humboldt Current that flows up from the Antarctic. ‘Ventolera’ is a Spanish word which refers to this strong sea wind; its cooling influence is instrumental in producing wonderfully elegant wines.
The vines are trained vertically with strict water control to moderate vigour and encourage small concentrated grapes.Their proximity to the sea ensures a cooling effect which combined with the higher humidity, enhances the fruit flavours in the grapes. Yields are approx five tonnes per hectare. The vines are grown in granite and alluvial soils. All the grapes are handpicked before being taken to the winery.
Handselected grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks and then aged in new French oak barrels for nine months. This wine is unfined and unfiltered.
