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 summer season was moderately warm with clear days. During the month of March
the weather turned quite cloudy with morning mists. This cooler weather resulted in fruit
with very good balance between alcohol and acidity along with a vibrant aromatic
profile.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in two blocks that are south east facing. Canopy management
in the vineyard ensures protection of the grapes from extreme sun exposure. The high
humidity level combined with the cooling effect from the sea ensures a moderate
climate for the vines. The vines are grown in heat-retaining granite and alluvial soil.
Winemaking
100% Sauvignon Blanc hand selected grapes from specific blocks within Ventolera's
estate vineyard. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to retain the freshness,
aromatics and a fruity style.
Tasting Note
Zesty citrus aromas of lime and grapefruit are layered with nectarine, gooseberry and
passionfruit lead to a real depth of juicy flavours on the palate. Intense and fullflavoured, with a delicious mineral character and a long, vibrant finish.
