Tim Atkin’s 2021 Chile Report

Tim Atkin MW has recently released his Chile Report, featuring two Kalfu wines:

Kalfu Sumpai Syrah 2019,  Leyda Valley (13%) 92 pts

The Leyda Valley is fast acquiring a global reputation for the quality of its cool climate Syrahs, typified by the perfume, focus and vivacity of this textured, grippy example. Black fruits, fennel and a sea breeze quality are framed by 15% new oak. 2022-26

Kalfu Sumpai Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Huasco (12.5%) 92 pts

Things don’t vary much from year to year in Huasco – especially the almost total absence of rain – which means that this Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from the Longomilla estate, is commendably consistent. Salty and chalky, with lime and green herb flavours, racy acidity and lovely freshness and palate length. 2021-23
