Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc 2013

750ML    
Sku: 040450

The 2013 season was characterized by low temperatures and a lack of rainfall during the grape ripening period. As a result, the grapes were harvested later than normal in order to ensure the good aromatic potential, and were exceptionally healthy. The Sauvignon Blanc harvest began in mid-April and the grapes were very high in quality with rich aromatics and excellent sugar and phenol levels. The wines for this vintage are vibrant, with fresh flavors and outstanding complexity.

Tasting notes
Pale green edges with a bright citrus bouquet and juicytropical aromas. Lime, grapefruit, pineapple and pear flavors are vibrant and fresh. Smooth mineral notes and a hint of herbs creates complexity for this crisp and delightful wine, followed by an elegant finish.

Wine maker notes
Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are located in Tapihue, a central portion of Chile’s famed Casablanca Valley that sits less than 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Maritime breezes keep temperatures cool while the bright daytime sun encourages a lengthy growing season resulting in wines with bright, tropical flavors.

Technical notes
Varietal Composition 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Other text
Root: 1 is located in the Maipo Valley, in the district of San Pedro, an area close to the coast. It was built with efficiency, quality and cutting-edge technology in mind, all of which is exemplified by the winery”s production process. It begins with a gravity-flow system that ensures reception of blemish-free grapes, and continues with the use of sorting tables that transport the fruit to stainless steel fermentation tanks. Environmental care is also a key objective. Energy conservation is a priority and water used in the winery is recycled for irrigation. In addition, every effort is made to preserve the surrounding native flora and fauna. Production processes conform to rigorous standards set by important certifications such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, the Clean Production Agreement (CPL), and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). In 2011 Vina Ventisquero was awarded a 100% Sustainable Certification by Wines of Chile. After getting a degree in agronomy from the Universidad de Chile, Felipe Tosso began his industry career in 1995 at Concha y Toro. After some time as chief winemaker for Concha y Toro”s Peumo Winery, he joined the Vina Ventisquero winemaking team in 2000 and has been the chief winemaker for Root: 1 since its launch in 2006. Today Felipe travels the world in an ever-increasing quest to sharpen his winemaking skills, visiting Napa; Sonoma; Priorat, Spain; Australia; and Bordeaux (Canon La Gaffeliere, La Mondotte, and Clos de L”Oratoire). As the company”s chief winemaker, he is the driving force behind its pursuit of ever-higher quality. His leadership and dedication to the environment have been instrumental in allowing Vina Ventisquero to become one of the most awarded wineries of Chile, earning certification as a 100% sustainable winery.
