Ventisquero is one of Chile’s most diverse and dynamic wine estates with vineyard sites in each of the country’s most established regions, but its story is one of dogged, bootstrapped determination and vision. From a single planting of Cabernet to becoming one of Chile’s largest estates two decades later, Ventisquero has blazed an enviable trail. Talented winemakers benefit from the tutelage of Australia’s inimitable John Duval in making quintessential wines of place. This Cabernet is sourced from the estate’s original planting, the Trinidad vineyard in the Maipo Valley. The oak is present but not overpowering, giving ample space for the full-bodied, primary notes of black cherry, fig, and green peppercorn to shine. To complement the ripe fruit, there’s also earth, gravel, and graphite. A versatile gem with broad appeal, it will be delicious with anything from grilled summer veggies and a side of garlic aioli to carne asada with a zesty chimichurri accoutrement. Now all you have to do is enjoy.
