Description:
Attractive presentation due to its deep colour with deep violet hues.

In the nose, it's intense aroma is a combination of fruit such as berries and flowers such as violets in addition to subtle notes of tobacco and moist soil.

The mouth is friendly, smooth, tasty and well structured. The sensation on the nose lingers in the palate.

96% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot.

Fermentation was initiated at 28°C, but the temperature was decreased afterwards in order to avoid excessive extraction of the elements in the skins. The wine was aged in oak barrels during which time malolactic fermentation took place. Throughout its lengthy development, the tannins were fine tuned and rounded out. Furthermore, a ripeness in its fruit expression was achieved associated to the unique characteristics of the oak it was stored in, thus creating a balance that provides a pleasant finish. Four rackings were performed while this wine was being developed.

Producer Information

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 1000ha 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.
To establish Caliterra as a truly international brand, the focus has been on developing export markets as the basis for supporting growth. Today, Caliterra is sold in 50 countries on five continents.
