Ventolera Sauvignon Blanc 2016

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 cool with cloudy weather during January and February, which slowed down the ripening of the grapes. Early crop adjustments were made in order to produce grapes with the optimal balance between alcohol and acidity. The fruit harvested is elegant and delivers beautiful mineral tones.

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 and an attractive hint of nettles, lead to a real depth of flavour on the palate, with an intense mineral character and a long, vibrant finish.

Serving Suggestion

Match with seafood such as smoked salmon, cold meat platters or hard cheese.
