100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Fruit-friendly, youthful and dynamic, Callia produces a range of easy-drinking wines in the San Juan region of Argentina. Callia’s philosophy is to produce wines that inspires the consumer to find some "me" time; to take a break and reward themselves for all their daily efforts that propel them forward.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
Bodegas Callia is situated in the Tulum Valley in Argentina’s province of San Juan. It is nestled between the Pie de Palo hills to the north and the Cerro Chico Del Zonsa to the south. Two finca estates encompass 700 acres of land: Finca Pie de Palo and Finca 9 De Julio. At 630 meters above sea level, the area is blessed by temperate climate, low rainfall and rich sandy alluvial and clay loam soil; the result is intense and fruity wines that reflect the rich terroir of this region.WINEMAKING
Harvest started in early March. Grapes were hand-harvested and immediately sent to the winery to achieve optimum conditions. After crushing, a prefermentative maceration was at 12 ℉ during 48 hours. Alcoholic fermentation took place between 24 ℉ and 26 ℉, during 11 days, with the addition of selected yeasts.AGING
30% of this blend was oak aged for three months, 50% in French Oak and 50% in American Oak.TASTING NOTES
Intense red color. On the nose, fruit aromas are combined with spiced aromas. On the palate, it is sweet and rounded with noticeable but very mild tannins that make it very delicate and easy to drink.
