Pure Gold...VIK Milla Cala...

The name VIK Milla Cala is a combination of Mapuche, the valley in Millahue where the winery is located, and the Spanish name Cala, synonymous with the Norwegian name Vik.

The vines grow on the northern slopes of the Apalta Valley, about two hundred kilometers from Santiago. The vineyards cover an area of ​​about eight hectares and are planted with six different vines, chosen according to the characteristics of the terroir, the climate and the sun exposure.

With a little more Carménère and Cabernet Franc than its big, elegant sister VIK, VIK Milla Cala is a rich, well-structured, perfectly balanced and beautifully fresh wine.

The Cabernet Sauvignon seduces with a firm but patient structure. The Cabernet Franc offers minerality, elegance and exquisite fruitiness.
The Carménère fills the senses with black fruits and offers endless volume. The Milla Cala 2019 dances uninhibited on the palate, spice, unstoppable liveliness and balanced acidity. The Merlot adds delicacy, while the Syrah carries notes of violet and lavender.

A wonderful mix of old and new world, crafted by Cristian Vallejo.
