Concentrated aromas with tropical fruit and citrus notes. Great acidity with fresh lime and grapefruit balanced by soft minerality on the palate. Bright and crisp with rich fruit expression, and an elegant finish. Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely food-friendly wine that pairs beautifully with fresh cheeses, seafood, grilled pork, or fresh lime chicken tacos. A lively match with spicy, crunchy Asian dishes, or spinach, almond and mandarin salad.
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

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.

Food pairing
Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc is an exceptionally versatile food wine that pairs perfectly with chicken Caesar salad, grilled fish, seafood and creamy pasta sauces.

Chile”s unique geography makes it one of very few grape-growing regions in the world where original European rootstock has been unaffected by phylloxera. While most vineyards around the world are planted on grafted rootstock, Root:1 grapes are grown on pure, ungrafted roots, producing wines of outstanding quality, with pure fruit flavors and authentic varietal character.
