The winemaker and founder, Daniel Miranda, spent many years traveling to and learning about the world of wine. Daniel has experience of many vintages in France, Spain and New Zealand but it wasn’t until 2010 that he and his wife, Alejandra Toro, decided to make wine in their native Chile.
The wines of Vultur are 100% Natural, part of the fast rising culture of minimal intervention wine making. From naturally cut irrigation paths to a gravity-fed winery. After the grapes are destemmed and pressed, the fermentation is long with 50% of the wine in stainless steel and the other 50% in old French oak barrels. All of the wines are fermented with natural indigenous yeasts. The wines then have a period of resting and ageing in their respective vessels for 6 months, then they are bottled unfined and unfiltered, which gives the wine a slight natural haziness.
This Sauvignon Blanc has an elegant and refined nose, with notes of citrus and minerals, which are signature characteristics of this grape variety. You will detect notes of thiols, such as grapefruit and lime. The mouth sensation is well rounded, persistent and balanced, with a rich natural acidity; its saline and somewhat mineral. The production of this wine is extremely limited. Only 1,050 individually numbered bottles were produced.
Their mission is to deliver delicacy and care in all the details of wine making, giving the wines a natural and first class treatment, in this way the love and passion they have is reflected in the final quality of the wines. This is a top class expression of Natural wine.
