Caliterra 'DSTNTO'

, 2017

Chile Red

Colchagua Valley 75cl

Buy a case for 130.00 (10.83 per bottle)

A delicious bright, crunchy blend of Malbec, Syrah, Carignan and Petit Verdot.

It undergoes Carbonic Maceration in old 400 litre French oak barrels and 700 litre earthware amphora. Fermented with wild native yeasts.

A lovely, bright, crunchy red, best served cool.
Deep in colour, bright black cherry and plum on the nose. The wine undergoes carbonic maceration in the winemaking - this is whole bunches allowed to spontaneously ferment from within the grape, this splits the skins and releases the juice without any crushing or pressing, meaning more vibrant fruit and less tannin.
Really full of bright red and black cherry and berry, pure and fresh, crunchy tannins and good acidity heightening the freshness. Thjs new 2017 may be the easiest drinking and most approachable so, just that touch lighter making it all the more approachable. Great with slow cooked Mexican influenced pork this evening!
Lovely example of some of the newer styles coming out of Chile.
