Ventisquero Pangea 2014

Pangea  is  an  intense  dark  colour.  The  nose  features  delicious, complex aromas which fully reflect a Syrah from the Apalta Valley, with notes of black fruit, like blueberries, harmoniously intermingled with spices like black pepper, mineral notes, like graphite, which are very typical of this terroir, which has granitic soils with high levels of quartz. A wine of ripe, firm tannins, great structure and acidity, this wine  is  at  its  best  if  decanted  before  serving.  This  wine  has  an  exceptional combination of concentration, flavours and aromas.

Ventisquero Pangea 2014

Soil: Granitic soil with red clay and mineral deposits such as quartz and
iron typical of the soils of Apalta. A depth of 1.5 to 2 metres and an altitude
of around 250 to 300 metres above sea level
Harvest: The grapes were harvested between 12th and 26th April. The
temperatures were medium to high during the ripening period in 2014
across almost all the valleys of Chile. This meant that the wines revealed
great aromatic intensity and varietal typicity and were very fresh thanks to
their crisp acidity. There was little rain during the ripening period and so the
grapes were in perfect healthy conditions when they were harvested. This
wine was made with a blend of grapes from plots 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17. All
the plots are on south-west facing slopes of more than 30%.
Fermentation: The grapes first underwent a pre-fermentative
low-temperature maceration for 5-7 days to bring out the maximum
colour and aromas. Then the grapes were fermented in small 3-5-tonne
stainless steel tanks and open 1-2-tonne vats. The fermentation took place
at between 22°C and 26°C. Next came a post-fermentative maceration
for at least 15 days. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrels with
native yeast, to lend greater complexity to the win.
Ageing: This wine had extended ageing, maturing for 22 months in
extra-fine French oak barrels - half in new barrels and the other half in
second-use. Each component of the wine was kept separate until the
blend was made 2 weeks prior to bottling. The wine was then bottle-aged
for at least 18 months. Pangea is neither clarified nor filtered, so over time
a sediment may appear.
Technical Data:
Alcohol by volume: 14.5% GL
pH: 3.33
Residual Sugar: 2.00 g/L

Ageing Potential: This wine can be enjoyed now or stored for at least 10
years in the right conditions (12°C to 18°C, away from light).
Pangea is a well-rounded, distinguished wine with an intense, dark colour. It
has delicious, complex aromas which come through in the mouth with soft
notes of red and blue berries, harmoniously intermingled with spices like
black pepper, dark chocolate and subtle notes of vanilla and caramel. This
wine has an exceptional combination of concentration, flavours and
aromas. Pangea is at essence a Syrah from the Apalta Valley that faithfully
expresses its terroir of granitic soils with high quartz content, properties
that are reflected in every glass. This is a well-structured wine with plenty
of acidity and ripe, firm tannins. We recommend decanting it prior to
drinking. Pangea pairs well with grilled meat, lamb and game.
