Vina Ventolera Valle de Leyda Pinot Noir 2017

Lovely earthy, warm and savoury style of Pinot Noir,
intense and complex with notes of incense, leather and
balsamic on the palate.
Producer Note
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.
Vintage
The 2017 harvest was characterised by high temperatures, and as a result it took place
two weeks earlier than in previous years, in order to preserve the grape’s natural acidity
and fresh flavours. Early crop adjustments ensured the perfect balance which
produced elegant wines with beautiful mineral tones.
Vineyard
The vineyard is located close to the sea, with sea breezes producing a cooling effect
which combined with the high levels of humidity, enhances the fruit flavours in the
grapes. The vines are trained vertically with strict water control which helps to moderate
vigour and encourage small concentrated grapes. Yields are approximately five tonnes
per hectare. The vines are grown in granite and alluvial soils. All the grapes are handpicked at optimal maturity levels, before being taken immediately to the winery in order
to retain freshness.
Winemaking
Hand-selected grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of
23°C with a total maceration time of 18 days. The wine was aged in new French oak
barrels for 14 months. This wine was bottled without fining.
Tasting Note
The vibrant bouquet of cherries and raspberries is a distinctive hallmark of the Leyda
Valley Pinot Noir. Expressive and layered on the palate, with great freshness, purity of
fruit and a long, structured finish.
