Intro to Ventisquero Grey Glacier Chardonnay –
Ventisquero Grey Chardonnay Chile is elegant, fresh and sophisticated with a nose of tropical fruits such as papaya and mango balanced with notes of honey and vanilla. It is full-bodied with balanced acidity and a fresh, fruity finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The wine was fermented slowly at a constant low temperature which enabled the maximum varietal aromas to be drawn out. 50% of the wine was fermented in French oak barrels, 10% of them new whilst the remaining 50% was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain a fruity component in the mixture. After fermentation, the wine was aged over its lees for ten months.
Ventisquero Grey Glacier Chardonnay has a complex and elegant bouquet, in which the aromas of ripe tropical fruit, such as pineapple, mango and papaya intermingle with gentle mineral and citrus notes. The oak-ageing contributes gentle notes of vanilla and dried fruit. This well-structured wine is refreshing thanks to its crisp acidity, which provides a broad and persistent finish. The dried fruit and vanilla come through again in the aftertaste.
The producer –
Ventisquero began making wine in Chile in 2000. Today, the winery is led by a young, creative team of entrepreneurs whose single purpose is to create distinctive, high quality wines. Under the guidance of our head winemaker Felipe Tosso, the winery was built in the Coastal Maipo Valley, where grapes for our first wines were grown. Three years later, we ventured into the Casablanca Valley and the prestigious Apalta Valley, the source today for Viña Ventisquero’s premium wines. With estate-owned vineyards in Chile’s top wine producing areas Coastal Maipo, Casablanca, Leyda and Colchagua and extensive research to uncover the secrets of their country’s unique terroir, Viña Ventisquero seeks to produce wines of the highest quality and consistency.
