Caliterra Petreo Carmenere
Caliterra Pétreo Carménère 2018
Caliterra's Pétreo wines refer to the clay and sedimentary schists found in this premium hillside vineyard plot. Only Carménère and Malbec vines are planted in these unique soils. Barrel fermented and then matured in oak for 18 months, the Pétreo Carménère is an exceptional, vibrant example of Chile's signature varietal with unique freshness, subtle spice and fresh berry fruits leading to a racy finish.
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.
