Viña Ventolera is an exciting new venture between founder Vicente Izquierdo and one of Chile’s top winemakers Stefano Gandolini. The Viña Ventolera vineyards, which were planted in 1999, are located in the cool climate 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 Antartic. These cooling influences are instrumental in producing wonderfully elegant wines.
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.
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.
Intense aromas of cherries and ripe plums combine with notes of sweet spice and a touch of white truffles. A linear, vibrant wine delivering ripe wild berried fruits and raspberry notes which are pure and fleshy. Supple and beautifully balanced through to a mineral finish.
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.
