Bodegas Callia is situated in the Tulum Valley in Argentina’s province of San Juan. It is nestled between the Pie de Palo hills to the north and the Cerro Chico Del Zonsa to the south. Two finca estates encompass 700 acres of land: Finca Pie de Palo and Finca 9 De Julio. At 630 meters above sea level, the area is blessed by temperate climate, low rainfall and rich sandy alluvial and clay loam soil; the result is intense and fruity wines that reflect the rich terroir of this region. Born from passion and legend, Bodegas Callia is named for a young woman who arrived in the land of San Juan many years ago. She wrote to her family describing San Juan as paradise endowed with abundant fruits despite the desert landscape. Her name was Callia and today, for the people of Argentina, Callia is synonymous with hope, endurance and success. Bodegas Callia celebrates the spirit of this illustrious woman. The winery’s goal is to produce the best wines in San Juan and the best Shiraz in Argentina. Along with creating quality wines, they continue to respect and support the people, nature and community from which their wines are created. Production Area The grapes were cultivated from vineyards located in Caucete and in Pocito, at 650 and 680 meters above sea level respectively. The soils are alluvial with low organic content. The vines are drip irrigated with snowmelt runoff from the Andes and are trained on trellis. Grape Varieties 100% Pinot Grigio Vinification The grapes are hand-harvested and clusters are manually selected before de-stemming. The wine is then cooled and immediately afterwards is separated in the pneumatic press to avoid the transfer of color from the skins to the must. Fermentation takes places at 17°C for 12 days. Select yeasts are inoculated. Wine is then aged in stainless steal tanks for 5 months. Color Intensely yellow with steel-like and greenish tints Bouquet Reminiscent of white flowers such as jasmine and linden, combined with ripe peach Taste Aromas are repeated delicately and elegantly in the mouth Alcohol 12.9% Serving Suggestions This young white wine should be served chilled to harmonize the flavor and acidity. The ideal temperature is 8°C - 10°C. Pairs well with fish and Mediterranean foods.

Vintage: 2009 03/17/2010

Soft and very peachy - really clear flavors of peach. A very coppery hue. Soft and round with very delicate and soft fruits. Very nice finish thats slightly sweet. Paired very well with prosciutto. Aromas are repeated delicately and elegantly in the mouth. This young white wine should be served chilled to harmonize the flavor and acidity.
