Vina Ventolera Litoral Leyda Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

A vibrant wine bursting with passionfruit, herbaceous and
mineral flavours with a hint of elderflower and peapod,
textured and wonderfully aromatic.
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 2010 summer was warm and dry. Sunny, warm days were tempered by cool
temperatures at night during February and March, which resulted in grapes with
wonderful concentration of flavours balanced by good acidity and freshness.
Vineyard
The grapes for this wine are picked from two blocks that were planted in 1999 and
2002. Block 1 has a south easterly orientation and is planted with clone 242 whereas
Block 20 has a north easterly orientation, but is also planted with clone 242. The vines
are trained to a Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) system. Careful canopy management
is undertaken, with 18 shoots per metre and two bunches per shoot, in order to protect
the fruit from too much sunshine exposure. This helps to enhance the freshness and fruit
flavour concentration in the berries. The vines are grown in granite and alluvial soils.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked and cooled to 8°C, destemmed and transferred to a
pneumatic press. After pressing, the juice was cold settled in stainless steel tanks. The
juice was then racked and inoculated with yeasts which have been carefully selected
to preserve the primary fruit aromas. Fermentation took place in small stainless steel
tanks at cool temperature, in order to retain fruit flavours and freshness. The wine was
aged on its lees for three months, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
Tasting Note
This Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and bright, brimming with grapefruit and passionfruit
flavours complemented by herbaceous notes. Vibrant and beautifully balanced with a
moreish texture and an elegant mineral note on the finish.
