About This Wine

Viña Ventisquero was founded in the late 1990s by Gonzalo Vial and has quickly gone on to become one of the countries top wine producers. With a winery based in the coastal Maipo Valley the estate sources grapes from the prestigious Casablanca, Leyda, Colchagua and Apalta Valley regions to produce a range of sought-after, awardwinning wines. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère provide the backbone of the range produced by winemaker Felipe Tossa and consultants Aurelio Montes and ex-Penfolds winemaker, John Duval. Young, dynamic and innovative, the wines of Viña Ventisquero provide a captivating glimpse into the diversity of terroirs of this exciting wine nation.

Ruby with violet hues. The nose is dominated by notes of prunes, intermingled with black pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla and chocolate. The mouth has good body and structure, balanced acidity and a long, spicy finish.

About Chilean Wines

Chile is a New World wine region and a significant player being the 5th largest exporter of wine in the world. While known for producing quality wines at value price points, wines from the region have also occasionally been awarded top places at international wine competitions.

The geography and climate of Chile is interesting for wine making in that there are dramatic changes from East to West and North to South. You have the Pacific Ocean running along the West coast bringing in cool ocean breezes. Along the Eastern side of the country’s border are elevated vineyards in the Andes mountain ranges; and in between the two you have warm valleys. Of course, in the North-South direction you have a major difference in latitude between the most northerly and southerly points. With a vast array of different wine growing conditions, Chile has shown that it can produce various varietals and different styles of wine.

In the warmer and drier areas of Chile, they make some concentrated and full-bodies reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Cooler areas will focus on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. Cabernet Sauvignon made in Chile is known to have softer tannins.

A rare grape, that you can’t not talk about when talking about Chilean wines is that of Carmenere. This grape originated from Bordeaux, France, and was nearly completely wiped out during the phylloxera plague of 1857. However, Carmenere was mistakenly planted as Merlot across Chile and was rediscovered in 1994. The varietal suited the conditions in Chile more so than those in France and Chile now has the world’s largest plantings of the grape at 8,800 hectares.

The natural borders of Chile have protected its vines from ever being contaminated by phylloxera louse. This means that Chilean vines don’t need to be grafted onto resistant roots like those in Europe.
