VENTISQUERO "GREY" 2012 PINOT NOIR

The Leyda Valley is a tiny sub-zone inside the coastal San Antonio Valley that developed a reputation a decade ago as the first truly great spot for Pinot Noir in Chile. The climate resembles Santa Barbara as the cold Pacific waters are just 5 miles away from this vineyard. Look for firm red currant fruit with raspberry, black plum, and blueberry-- pretty Pinot for sure

This wine is deep ruby-red in color with violet hues. The nose initially reveals black and red berries such as murtillas, blueberries, black cherries and raspberries. The mouth provides juicy black fruit flavous and balanced acidity, together with soft, well-rounded tannins over soft french oak.

Two years ago we discovered the Viña Ventisquero line from Chile. At the time we wrote, “WOW, what a lineup-- pure, multi-layered wines at unbeatable values,” adding several wines across many price points. At a recent trade show, we tasted the full line again and knew it was time to buy up, but this time we were most impressed with “the best of the best” selections from the “Grey” Gran Riserva tier and a few prestige bottlings. Ventisquero owns over 4,000 acres across top growing areas in Chile, from Casablanca, Maipo, Apalta, and more. The “Grey” wines represent the best blocks in the best vineyard from Ventisquero’s vast holdings. Winemaker Felipe Tosso is a star in Chile, but for these higher tier wines benefit from the added assistance of consultant John Duval, famed as the man entrusted to make Penfolds Grange for over 20 years. This collection is impressive and drinks well above their price tags that seem downright modest in the American market
