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.

Taste Profile of this Wine

The Winecroft Wine Style Meter is a key tool to match you with the wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test.

The needle shows the style of the wine:

  • Light: These are delicate wines which are easy to drink.  Whites will be dry, crisp and zesty.  Reds will be paler in colour with lighter tannins (tannins create a drying sensation in your mouth).
  • Medium-bodied: These wines offer up loads of fruit flavours with a balance of zesty acidity and tannins (in the reds).
  • Full-bodied: Red will be bigger, bolder and have higher levels of tannin. Whites will be rich and creamy,

The Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine based on your personal wine profile.

Winecroft 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.

 

Wines each month

Each month we will recommend 4 superb new wines to try, individually matched to your latest taste profile. As a new Winecroft member, you will receive these 4 wines, delivered to your door.  In subsequent months, you will have full control over the wines you receive. You may find your wine preferences evolve over time, you would prefer more red than white, or you decide last month’s recommended wines weren’t quite right for you. In which case, you can update your taste profile and change or add to the recommended wines each month. And if you enjoyed one of the bottles so much, you can always order more.  You may, on the other hand, find you are just too busy to think about it, in which case you can opt to receive the wines hand-picked for your profile.

The one thing that won’t change is that our members will always be drinking top-end wines that are on wine lists of the world’s best restaurants, for typically less than a third of the price.

(Quick note – for new members who have just made your first order, when you look at your order details you will see next month’s recommendation.  Initially, this will contain the same wines as your first order but don’t worry, the Winecroft team will be working behind the scenes to quickly update this with 4 great new recommended wines based on your profile.)
