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 and intense ruby red with violet hints. This is fruity and expressive, its cherry and raspberries notes complemented with a soft, spicy character and a vanilla touch from the oak ageing.

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 took place between 27th March and 14th April, with clusters were harvested during the night to avoid oxidation and loss of quality. The grapes first underwent a cold maceration for 6 to 7 days to increase contact between the juice and the skins. Next they were fermented in open tanks at a controlled temperature of between 22°C and 26°C which allowed extraction of the aromas characteristic of Pinot Noir. 15% of the wine was aged in French oak for 8 months. The rest was kept in stainless steel tanks.
