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

Very smooth red, goes down easy. Soft tannins, as was previously stated.

If you like fruit you'll love this wine from Chile. Deep purplish in color, very clear (looks quite pretty in crystal). Lovely cherry and blackberry on the nose and tongue with just a hint of vanilla. Very soft tannings, nice acidity (makes the mouth water), short finish. A great little wine to take to a party for those who "don't drink red wine".
