Calina Chardonnay Reserva 2008

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Medium bright golden straw, aromas of yellow apples, pear rind and minerals, viscus body with round apple pear, lime zest and popsicle stix with oily texture, focused notes throughout a rich mouthfeel that carries on. What do you want for $5 or $6? A terrific everyday value!!

Viña Calina is situated atop a gentle slope overlooking the northern Maule Valley midway between the Andes and coastal mountains. The winery produces a collection of red Bordeaux varietals with its Calina Reserva, Alcance and Bravura labels. From a modern understanding of site. Calina Reserva wines are blends from the best of Chile's great wine regions. Alcance wines are estate-based wines reflecting the temperate climate and excellent soils of the El Maitén Vineyard. Bravura, produced only in banner vintages, is a Super-Chilean Cabernet blend. Inspired by its Chilean ancestry, Viña Calina specializes in Carménère, Chile's signature varietal and lost grape of Bordeaux. Viña Calina is defining its place in the Maule Valley with a state-of-the-art winery and newly acquired estate vineyards. The Maule Valley itself mirrors Chile's evolution of two worlds coming together. Old-world European heritage and new-world innovation are found intertwined in the countryside's two-hundred year-old vines bordering recent plantings in sites prized for their quality. Viña Calina is at the heart of this evolution with wines rooted in Chilean soil yet crafted using modern winemaking techniques. Read less

The 2006 vintage again combines the tropical character of Casablanca grapes with the aromas of citrus fruits and mineral undertones that come from the grapes picked in Limari. This pairing gives Calina Chardonnay an unequalled complexity. Its vibrant and finely integrated acidity gives way to a creamy finish with subtle toasty notes. A well-balanced and long, lingering wine.
