Taste of the cool ocean
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.
Chicken or fish with herb sauces. Feta cheese. Thai and Vietnamese cuisine.
