Description

VIK Milla-Cala

VIK Milla Cala is a lush blend of Chile's signature red grape Carmenère with other Old World varietals.

Medium-deep crimson to brick red colour. Red plum and strawberry bouquet with floral notes of lavender and violet. The wine has a firm texture, velvety but focused tannins and a silky mouthfeel. Vibrant and luscious fruit flavours of cassis, black cherries and dark plum with complementary nutty notes and a touch of mocha.

The blend comprises mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère with small percentages of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. The fruit for this wine comes from a selection of VIK's vineyards in Cachapoal Valley. The vineyards have deep, porous decomposed granitic soil with good drainage. They also experience a temperate Mediterranean climate with a marine influence from the Pacific.

After harvesting and sorting the grapes by hand, they go through a gentle pressing. After fermentation, the wine ages for 20 months in French oak barrels.

Top tip: Decant for an hour before serving or cellar for up to a decade.
