Casablanca valley is ideal for fresh, crisp, white varietals that produce wines with minerality, bright fruit flavor and balanced acidity.
Building on Agustin Huneeus’ vision to produce world-class Sauvignon Blanc from this emerging wine region, and the success of Veramonte’s Sauvignon Blanc program, Ritual was created as an elegant, yet approachable interpretation of Sauvignon Blanc. Only the finest estate-grown fruit from vineyard blocks known for producing intense fruit flavors and higher acidity are chosen for this wine.
The resulting wine is medium bodied, featuring a round, textural mouth feel with balanced acidity. Intense flavors of ripe tropical fruit mingle with hints of citrus in structured complexity from 5 months of French Oak aging. The experience ends with a long, smooth finish.
|Opening in 1998, Veramonte is a striking, modern facility designed by one of Chile’s leading architects, Jorge Swinburn. It houses the latest technology in gravity-based fermentors, ultra-modern stainless steel tanks and high efficiency bottling lines. Built for small-lot wine production, the facility ensures individual vineyard blocks can be fermented and aged separately prior to final blending – allowing winemaking to create authentic, vineyard expressive wines.
Veramonte was founded as a vineyard-based winery whose mission is to produce high quality wines that accurately, authentically express varietal characteristics via Chile’s unique terroirs -- the combined environment of soil, topography, climate and people. Our commitment to nurturing the ties of every wine to its soil or ”sense of place” reflects a dedication to produce terroir expressive wines.
