Description

The Kalfu ranges are linked to the sea creatures depicted on the labels: Molu means 'where the sun sets' - historically it was believed that during the day stars would hide in the sea and become starfish.

Wine tasting notes

Deep violet red with ruby hues at the rim. Aromas of black cherry and raspberry, complimented by notes of vanilla, spices and dark chocolate from oak ageing. In the mouth it has a balanced acidity, round tannins and a soft finish.

Winery information

Kalfu

Made by Ventisquero Wine Estates, Kalfu means ‘blue’ in Mapudungun, the language of the aboriginal Mapuche people of southern Chile, representing the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean and the extensive skies of the region. Kalfu wines are made from 100% estate owned vineyards in the coastal regions of Leyda Valley (pictured above), Casablanca Valley, Colchagua Valley and the Atacama Desert, the world’s driest desert.

Situated so close to the Pacific, each vineyard site benefits from cooling coastal breezes and a subsequently longer ripening period.

Sustainability is a core value at Kalfu. Last year in their Leyda vineyard they launched a photovoltaic project which will generate 164,900 kwh of clean energy, meaning that 80 tons of CO2 per year will no longer be emitted.

Vinification notes

Harvest was carried out at night from 25th March. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures to extract maximum colour and aromas. 70% of the wine was aged in French oak for 10 months.
