    Chile has 2,700 miles of coastline along the Pacific Ocean and produces wines that are pure, fruity and herbaceous.  Kalfu wines all about the cool coastline.  Kalfu means “Blue” in Mapudungun, the language of the aboriginal Mapuche people of the region and Sumpai are mythological Mapuche beings, half-human and half fish.  According to legends, their mission is to care for rivers, lakes and oceans.  Nobody has ever seen them!

    The Kalfu Sumpai Syrah is a wonderful example of cool-climate style Syrah.  It is produced from vineyards in the Leyda Valley, situated just 7 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean and close to the Maipo River, the three terraces face directly towards the coast and are subject to the cooling influence of the sea breezes and morning fog.  The wine is a deep violet red, has herbal notes of lavender and thyme, complemented by soft aromas of violets and red berries.  It has crisp acidity and great freshness.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
