Caliterra was established in 1996 as a partnership between the Robert G. Mondavi family and Viña Errázuriz, who sought to realize their shared dream of producing high quality wines that reflect the potential of the Chilean nature, terroir and fruit.

The Colchagua Valley was chosen as the home of Caliterra Estate. Located in the heart of the valley, the estate of approximately 1,085 ha (2,681 acres) has 75% of untouched natural land and Mediterranean climate, where cool nights and gentle breezes temper the sun’s energy creating perfectly ripe, intense, concentrated and balanced wines.

In early 2004 Viña Errázuriz acquired the Robert Mondavi family’s 50% share in Caliterra, with the goal to craft premium environmentally friendly wines from one of the world’s most important winegrowing regions. Caliterra’s philosophy is to craft environmentally friendly wines under the concepts of precision winegrowing and sustainable vineyard management, where each variety stands out for their fruity, fresh and distinctive style, expressing the quality and pureness of Chile’s nature, terroir and fruit.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS:  Through this wine we seek to highlight the terroirs expression, by adapting each vinification technique in order to extract the fruits' maximum potential.  This wine is very fresh with an excellent balance of acidity.
 
TASTING NOTES:  Mineral notes mingle with aromas of chili peppers, tomato leaf and lime.  An intensely aromatic wine with a full flavoured palate.
