Hot off the press for summer - the new 2010 vintage of leading Chilean producer Viña Ventisquero's environmentally friendly Yali Wetland Merlot Rosé 2010.

Weighing in at just 11.5°, ths is the lightest Rosé from Chile.  The low alcohol level is achieved in Viña Ventisquero's owned vineyards in Colchagua Valley where the Mediterranean climate is tempered by sea breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean.  Winemaker Alejandro Galaz explains, "We allow the canopy to grow unmanaged.  The shoots grow and open up over the clusters acting effectively as sun umbrellas.  This allows the grapes to ripen fully, but removes direct exposure to the intense Chilean sunshine which would raise the sugar content and alcohol."
