Winemaker Notes

Ritual Pinot Noir is produced using organic methods in the Casablanca Valley of Chile. A medium bodied Pinot Noir with remarkable floral, cherry and raspberry aromas. On the mouth bright fruit flavors with a wonderful texture and extraordinary acidity. Smooth and balanced with a long, silky and velvety finish. Ideal with grilled tuna and seafood risotto.

This is a high-toned and focused red with strawberry, lemon and cherry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, vivid fruit and a long and flavorful finish. Screw cap. Drink now or hold.

French and American Pinot clones supply the raw material for this partially whole bunchfermented red, aged in 15% new oak. Textured, aromatic and summer pudding sweet, with fine tannins and some grip. 2019-24. Alcohol: 13.5%

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The first of two Pinot Noirs I tasted was the 2016 Ritual Pinot Noir, a red full of character. It had a mineral palate with very tasty flavors, sour cherries and spices, and varietal character. The oak was nicely integrated oak, and the wine was fresh, with fine tannins. 96,000 bottles were filled in June 2017.

Ritual wines come from the Veramonte winery. Veramonte represents a return to Agustin Huneeus' Chilean roots. When he spearheaded development of the Veramonte Estate in 1990, there were less than 100 acres of grapevines planted in the Casablanca Valley.

The coastal mountain ranges surrounding the Casablanca estate create a unique terroir with a diversity of microclimates. The valley floor's cool climate is reminiscent of Carneros and ideal for growing premium Chardonnay. The foothills are warmer, akin to the more Northern reaches of the Napa Valley. Here, the climate is more suited to varieties like Carmenëre, the lost Bordeaux grape that has become Chile's citizen and the basis of Primus, our racy, exotic Chilean blend.

Using the latest viticultural technology developed in California, rootstock has been matched to each vineyard block and clone. Vertical trellising and dense vine spacing balance growth and fruit production. Veramonte's Casablanca vineyard produces significantly lower yields than other grape growing regions in Chile, resulting in grapes with more intensity and concentration.

Recognizing that the region also had potential as a tourist destination for its proximity to Santiago, Huneeus began to plant the estate and in 1995, constructed the first Napa Valley style hospitality center in Chile. The first wines were released in 1996.
