    Inspired by the peaceful and perpetual flight of the Andean Condor (Vultur Gryphus), Vultur is a multi-award winning family winery that makes premium, characterful wines on a human scale, with minimum intervention and faithful to their origin in the Colchagua Valley of central Chile.  Here, sandwiched between the Andes Mountains and the Coastal Mountain Range, the valley’s arid Mediterranean climate enables red wine grapes to ripen slower with little intervention. Bordeaux grape varietals are the stars here and although Petit Verdot is used a little to boost colour, tannins, and alcohol in the blended red wines of Bordeaux, here it can be the main event since cool sea influence keeps the acidity fresh in the grapes providing wonderful balance to the wine.

    Comprising of 90% Petit Verdot with a small 10% of Carignan, the wine is handmade in small batches. The majority of the wine undergoes 30 days of maceration and is aged in French oak barrels for 14 months.  Both varietal wines are blended together prior to being bottled, unfiltered. The resultant wine is beautifully textured with smooth tannins. The mouth-feel is full and weighty. The elegance of the Petit Verdot combines perfectly with the liveliness and freshness of the Carignan.  The nose is slightly spicy, offering notes of raspberries from the Carignan with the wonderful plum, lilac, violet and sage flavours coming through from the Petit Verdot.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
