Chilean producer Kalfu pride themselves on vineyard selection, believing that each site gives something special to the character of the resulting wines. They have the only commercial vineyards in the Atacama Desert, the driest place on earth, with an extreme terroir including salty soils. This allows them to make their unique Sumpai Sauvignon Blanc with saline characters like no other. Their Casablanca vineyard with its sandy, clay soils and cooling coastal breezes gives rounder, softer fruit characters that are the aim of their everyday drinking Molu Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Leyda vineyard, just 7 km from the freezing Pacific Ocean with much more alluvial and granitic soils, produces leaner, tenser styles such as the Kuda Unoaked Chardonnay, which is a perfect example of clean pristine fruit. Kalfu have started experimenting with Sauvignon Blanc aged in concrete eggs, and a fun carbonated pink Moscato – perfect for the summer months, so watch this space!
