  • Ventisquero Tara Chardonnay 2018

    £33.95

    “The cloudy and characterful 2018 White Wine 1 Chardonnay has to be one of the most particular whites from Chile, a wine about the place rather than the variety. It’s only 12.5% alcohol and has vibrant acidity with intense flavors and a strong stony sensation in the palate. This wine comes from a unique place in the Atacama Desert with stony and limestone soils. They pressed the grapes with 50% full clusters, and the juice fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine matured in 50% concrete eggs and 50% in untoasted oak foudres for 24 months. This really expresses the character of the place, austere and with a marked personality. It finishes with a chalky and saline feeling. Possibly the finest vintage to date. Drink: 2021-2025. 95 points

    Tara is one of the craziest projects in Chile, as it planted vines in the south of the Atacama desert in the Huasco Valley. The wines are wild and characterful, very original.”

  • Ventisquero Tara Pinot Noir 2018

    £33.95

    “There is a medicinal and wild aspect in the 2018 Red Wine 1 Pinot Noir that is hard to describe. It’s not about fruit at all; it’s more herbal and spicy, intriguing, with an austere palate about stones and spices, with moderate alcohol and ripeness. It develops some floral tones in the finish. 3,300 bottles produced. Drink: 2021-2026. 93 points
