Producer Information

Caliterra derives its name from the Spanish calidad or "quality" and tierra "land", combining a passion for viticulture and winemaking to produce environmentally friendly wines of typicity, reflecting their terroir.
The home of Caliterra is the spectacular 1,030ha estate in the heart of Colchagua, a protected valley southeast of Lago Rapel. A total of 250ha have been planted to vine of a possible 415ha. The whole estate is managed with the utmost respect to sustainable agricultural practices; not only in the vineyard itself but the surrounding bush land as well, where the grazing of wild horses helps reduce the risk of fire.
High quality grapes are sourced from Caliterra's vineyards in Curica and Casablanca. The best of the high density and terraced vineyards on the Colchagua estate provide fruit for the Tributo reds while the Tributo whites come from the cooler Casablanca. The roots of the brand however are firmly in the Colchagua Valley.
Caliterra has implemented various systems in the cellar in order to be increasingly more energy efficient. The most important are the use of gravity flow in all winery operations and free cooling in the barrel room.
Gravity flow consists of using gravity to rack the wines. To facilitate the process, the Caliterra cellar was built on different levels, which is approximately 20% more energy efficient than using pumps. This system prevents pressure and stress on the grapes which can generate a phenolic bitterness in the wine.
The barrel room benefits from a "free cooling" concept to control temperatures. This is a semi-passive system that transfers air between the interior and exterior of the room. To lower the temperature night air is brought in from the vineyard to raise it the system uses daytime air. This is approximately 30% more efficient than conventional methods.

Production

The Colchagua Valley is home to the Caliterra Estate, located 200 km south of Santiago and 60 km from the coast at 150 metres above sea level. Caliterra Estate experiences a Mediterranean climate, where cool nights and gentle breezes temper the sun's energy creating perfectly ripe, intense, concentrated and balanced wines. The grapes for this wine were sourced from different blocks within our property/estate. The soil is a Piedmont-type, rocky, with a loamy texture.

43% Cabernet Franc, 26% Petit Verdot, 14% Malbec, 8% Carmenere, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Syrah

88% fermented in stainless steel tanks and 12% in barrels of 3rd use at between 24-28°C. 100% aged in barrel for 18 months in 41% new French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

The appearance of this wine is deep and intense. This is a classic ruby-red wine made with Bordeaux grape varieties. It is fresh and elegant on the nose, with several aromatic layers. Spicy notes such as pepper, tarragon and rosemary gently give way to fruity aromas such a blueberry and sour cherries. Soft touches of roasted tomatoes complete its bouquet. On the palate, the fruitiness and smoothness of this elegant wine, which also has a rich and crispy acidity, signals a great structure and good in-bottle ageing.

This is a wine made for wintery stews, pies with gravy and creamy mash, steak with chimichurri or aged cheeses.
