Vik Milla Cala Millahue 2020 750ml

JS-93, RP-91

S$70.00

Sweet berries, dried flowers, fresh mushrooms and some currants on the nose, following through to a medium to full body with fine, creamy tannins that give the wine form and tension. Juicy and savory fruit. A blend of cabernet franc, syrah, carmenere and merlot. Better to give this time, but already a beautiful, juicy red to drink. Drink or hold.

A ripe but juicy red with plenty of blackcurrants, sweet berries, a hint of tobacco leaf and grilled herbs. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate with fine-grained tannins and a spicy, tight finish. 64% cabernet sauvignon, 23.5% carmenere, 8% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 1.5% syrah. 20 months in used barrels, of which 60% follows a barroir concept where the oak was toasted with local oak trees. Better in a year or two.

The 2020 Milla Cala was produced with a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23.5% Carmenere, 8% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Syrah from their vines in Cachapoal. The grapes were picked during the night, fermented after a five-day cold soak and went through malolactic in barrel and an √©levage in French barriques, 10% of them new, for 20 months. It’s powerful and ripe at 14.2% alcohol and 3.36 grams of residual sugar. The oak is nicely integrated, and the wine feels quite serious, more linear, and it’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and no creaminess or sweetness. 110,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2022.
