The Kalfu ranges are named after sea creatures that are depicted on the labels: Kuda is a seahorse, a delicate and unique creature.

Deep violet red with ruby rim, aromas of black cherry, vanilla and spice from barrel ageing. Medium bodied and delicate, it has a balanced acidity, showing smooth, round tannins that provide elegance.

The 2017 vintage was characterised by a year of low to medium temperatures in the Leyda Valley. This resulted in the grapes ripening more quickly, with an earlier harvest resulting in well-balanced and aromatic wines.

After hand harvesting, an initial pre-fermentative cold maceration was carried out for 7 to 8 days. Subsequently, alcoholic fermentation was performed at controlled temperatures (between 24 to 26°C) for 7 to 10 days, and pressed to gently extract the maximum colour and aroma. The wine then spent 12 months in French oak barrels, of which 10% were new, 20% second use and the remaining 70% third and fourth use.
