Wine tasting notes

Of carmine-red colour, this wine feels intense right from the beginning. Spicy aromas of roasted paprika, black pepper and strawberries syrup stand out on the nose. Smooth floral aromas like violets, accompanied by subtle touches of bittersweet chocolate, dried tobacco leaves and dry earth. This extremely fresh wine offers very soft and silky tannins on the palate. Its nice acidity and great volume allow predicting a good ageing potential

Winery information

Caliterra

Caliterra was established in 1996 as a joint venture between the families of Robert Mondavi and Vina Errazuriz. In January 2004 Vina Errazuriz became the sole owners of Caliterra, at the heart of which is the impressive 1000ha Caliterra Estate.The name Caliterra is taken from 'Calidad' Spanish for quality and 'Tierra' - land. The wine making philosophy of Caliterra is to produce environmentally friendly, quality wines in the heart of the Colchagua Valley. The focus is around the Caliterra estate in Colchagua where 288ha are currently under vine. Crucially a large proportion of this estate, and all new plantings, are on prime hillside sites resulting in high quality fruit and complex wines.Over the past few years, Caliterra has pioneered a move to sustainable wine production with the country's leading consultant. The four pillars of this approach are sustainable viticulture, community commitment, environmental preservation and eco friendly packaging - for more information see 'green matters'Caliterra is certified sustainable - one of the very first Chilean wineries to achieve this accreditation.
