Kalfu Kuda Pinot Noir, Leyda 2014
Leyda Valley is a small sub-region of the San Antonio Valley wine region in Chile, located just 90 kilometres west of the Chilean capital, Santiago. This cool-climate region enjoys the effects of the cold Humboldt Current of the Pacific Ocean, and consequently produces bright, vibrant wines made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region is also responsible for excellent examples of Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah. This close proximity to the coast is what is driving growers to Leyda. Cold ocean breezes and morning fog moderate the overall temperatures, and the valley is therefore significantly cooler than its low latitude might suggest. These cool temperatures are complemented by warm sunshine during the long growing season, letting grapes ripen fully and develop complexity while still retaining acidity.
Deep violet red with ruby tones at the rim. Dominated by aromas of black cherries and forest floor. This medium-bodied, delicate wine has well-balanced acidity that is smooth, with rounded tannins, which lend it elegance. It is fresh and fruity in the finish with notes of soft Vanilla and dried fruit.
