Ventisquero Tara White Wine 1 is an exquisite Chardonnay wine hailing from the Atacama Desert in Chile. This wine is lauded for its delightful balance of acidity and freshness. It unveils aromatic layers of citrus, combined with subtle floral notes, and a touch of minerality. On the palate, it unveils crisp apple, pear and a sophisticated creamy texture. Intricate hints of spice and a charming, lengthy finish make this wine a true conversation starter, perfectly suiting sophisticated gastronomic experiences. A superbly crafted art of winemaking, Ventisquero Tara White Wine 1 is a hidden gem in the world of Chardonnay.
It's a fresh, nervous, mineral wine. The mouth is tense and well-structured. The chalkiness and salinity of the soil come through in the palate. The nose reveals fruit, such as sweet cucumbers and apricots, as well as floral notes. As you sip the wine, it evolves in the glass. This is not a classic style of Chardonnay and we attribute this to its very particular and unique terroir. The Pacific Ocean has a major influence on the vineyard, producing morning fog, known locally as the “Camanchaca”, and strong winds, which cool the vines, making this a desert with cool climate conditions. The area is very arid and the soils are chalky and saline.
