Winemaker Notes

Intense and brilliant ruby, red color. The nose is perceived highly expressive ripe plums, cherries, strawberries with hints of spices and nuts. The palate entry is sweet, good concentration and volume, firm tannins that will give longevity.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Calcura is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 20% Malbec aged in French oak for 12 months. Cedar, spice box, tobacco, violets, and assorted black fruits lead to an incipiently complex, nicely proportioned, lengthy offering that has enough underlying structure to evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now. It will continue to provide pleasure through 2017+.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This is prickly and spicy on first take, followed by an aromatic wave of ripe berry and tobacco. It feels jammy and almost heavy, with creamy, milkshake flavors of blackberry, vanilla and cream, and a warm, Port-like finish. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20%.

Antucura
Antucura means the ancient language of the Pehuenches - the first inhabitants of the area - "Stone of the Sun." We chose this name for our winery and lodge at Vista Flores because the vineyards that give the birth to our beloved wines grow here naturally, among stones and rocks. This special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was elaborated with both care and passion. It aged in new French oak barrels for twelve months before bottling, then stored until ready for release.

Our winery mingles with the terroir, the ancient viticultural traditions and the new vinification technologies. Born to be the matrix of super premium and ultra premium wines, our winery counts with top quality controls and extra care. Through a special gravity flow system the grapes are gently pressed and therefore wines are nurtured in unparalleled conditions.

Praised for its stately Renaissance-era chateaux as well as its diverse variety of wines, the picturesque Loire valley produces elegant and underrated red, white, and rosé as well as sparkling and sweet wines. Just south of Paris, the appellation lies along the river of the same name and stretches from the center of France to the Atlantic coast. Geography and climate differ greatly along the Loire’s vast length. Furthest inland, the climate is continental, becoming classically maritime as it reaches the ocean. Accordingly, the Loire Valley is perhaps the most diverse wine-producing region in France—this region does a little bit of everything, and it does it all quite well.

The Loire can be divided into three main growing areas, from west to east: the Lower Loire, Middle Loire, and Upper/Central Loire. The Pay Nantais region of the Lower Loire is focused on acidic, saline whites that beg for fresh seafood. Muscadet, made from the Melon de Bourgogne variety, is the most noteworthy appellation here. The Middle Loire contains Anjou, Saumur, and Touraine. In Anjou, Chenin Blanc reaches its zenith, producing outstanding dry and sweet wines reminiscent of crisp apples dipped in honey. Cabernet Franc dominates red and rosé production here, supported often by Grolleau and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sparkling Crémant de Loire is a specialty of Saumur. Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are common in Touraine as well, along with Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, and Malbec (known locally as Côt). The Upper Loire is Sauvignon Blanc country, home to the world-renowned appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Pinot Noir and Gamay produce bright, easy-drinking red wines here.
