Caliterra Tributo Single Vineyard Carmenere 2018

Chile / Colchagua Valley

Andy's Tasting Notes

This grape variety, Carmenere, is sometimes referred to as Merlot on steroids! This is because of its rich and robust yet smooth style.  This has a lot going on for its price.

Producer Info

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 environmentally friendly, quality wines in the heart of the Colchagua Valley. The focus is around the Caliterra estate in Colchagua where 288ha 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.

Over the past few years, Caliterra has pioneered a move to sustainable wine production with the country’s leading consultant. The four pillars of this approach are sustainable viticulture, community commitment, environmental preservation and eco friendly packaging.

Rodrigo has worked his way up to the position of Chief Winemaker at Caliterra marking himself out as a young winemaker to watch.
