Kalfu, Kuda Sauvignon Blanc
Kuda Sauvignon Blanc

 

Tasting Notes: “Kalfu” means “blue” in the indigenous Mapuche language, capturing the essence of the sunlit azure waters along the Chilean coast near Leyda. Vintner Alejandro Galaz specializes in wines exhibiting a cool climate personality, wines that are crystalline and pure in structure, without over-wrought fruits and overly present alcohol. Kuda Sauvignon Blanc has a bright, fresh mouthfeel that gives life to alluring stone fruits, white floral and citrus notes, and a pleasing minerality. The “little sister” wine to the exceptional Kalfu Sumpai Sauvignon Blanc, this is a value from Leyda not to be missed.
