Kalfu, Sumpai Syrah
Sumpai Syrah


Tasting Notes: “Kalfu” means “blue” in the language of the indigenous Mapuche tribe of coastal Chile near Leyda. Here, the 600 miles of ocean and sky meet in a myriad of blue, azure, and aquamarine, and create a remarkable environment for achieving winemaker Alejandro Galaz’s primary goal: making elegant, cool-climate wines. This wine is a deep violet red. Notes of wild Chilean black berries complemented by herbal notes. Medium-bodied, with crisp acidity and great freshness and a soft, elegant background from the French oak barrels, blending together spices with wild fruits.
