Caliterra Bio Sur Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Caliterra was established in 1996 as a joint venture between the families of Robert Mondavi and Viña Errazuriz. In January 2004 Viña Errazuriz became the sole owners of Caliterra, at the heart of which is the impressive 1000ha Caliterra Estate. The name Caliterra is taken from 'Calidad' spanish for quality and 'Tierra' - land. The wine making philosophy of Caliterra is to produce environmentaly friendly quality wines in the heart of the Colchagua Valley. The focus is around the 1000ha Caliterra estate in Colchagua where 242ha are currently under vine. Crucially a large proportion of this estate, and all new plantings, are on prime hillside sites resulting in high quality fruit and complex wines. Caliterra as a truly International brand, the focus has been on developing export markets as the basis for supporting growth. Today, Caliterra is sold in 50 countries on five continents.With our Bio - Sur range we are introducing the elaboration of wines with organic grapes grown in our own vineyards. In this moment the vineyard is in process to obtain the final organic certification, which implies to cultivate the grapes as organic. We must be patient for the final certification; meanwhile Bio - Sur will be crafted using these organic grapes. Bio - Sur is an accurate reflection of how the exuberant biodiversity present in the soil and air of our vineyards influences the final wine. As the name Bio - Sur reflects, we are delivering wines full of life that are crafted in our far southern country. A short but necessary period for barrel ageing is almost subtle in the final aromatic profile. The 'Caliterra Bio - Sur Cabernet Sauvignon' shows a lively deep ruby red colour. In aromas, the wine presents an extraordinary elegance that is enhanced by complex perfumes, essences and delicate subtle notes present in the wine. On the palate, intense tannins in a perfect balance take us to a complex and elegant sensation.
