    Chile has 2,700 miles of coastline along the Pacific Ocean and produces wines that are pure, fruity and herbaceous.  Kalfu wines all about this 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 Sauvignon Blanc is a wine of its place.  It is produced in a vineyard in the Huasco Valley, situated in the world’s driest desert, the Atacama, just 24 km from the Pacific Ocean. A vineyard influenced by saline soils, cool coastal breezes, cool nights and long, desert summers.  This wine is transparent and pale green in colour. Notable for its minerality with soft notes of green chilli pepper and herbs. A light fresh structure and crisp acidity. A clean finish with intense salinity.

    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.
