Food Pairings for Viña Caliterra Carménère Colchagua Valley Reserva
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. Thie wine displays a deep purplish-black in color with a nose that presents a series of fruity aromas such as blackberries and raspberries combined with a clear note of fragrant tobacco. This Carménère’s surprisingly soft palate is accentuated and flavorful, leading to a delightfully pleasing finish
