The VIK Milla Cala 2019 is a bordeaux blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carmenere, 7% Cabernet Franc, 8% Syrah and 1% Merlot coming from the vineyards in the Andes in Millahue, Cachapoal Valley. The soil consists of deep, porous decomposed granite soil with good drainage. An important reason why the VIK Wines now have cult status and are listed in the top of the world's best wineries according to Wine Enthusiast, is partly because of the unique (mineral) terroir, but certainly also the altitude and the cool humid wind from the Pacific Ocean. All this ensures coolness and a large difference between day and night temperatures and this is a very important ingredient for elegant and balanced wine with a good ratio between the fruit, acids and alcohol.

The Milla Cala reflects the pure terroir of Millahue Valley. Each variety dynamically contributes to the complexity of the Bordeaux style blend. Cabernet Sauvignon seduces with ripe dark berry fruit and supple velvet tannins. Merlot delivers plush stone fruit while Cabernet Franc elevates the blend with elegant minerality. Carmenere gives the blend its depth, body and flavors of blackberry and plum, and Syrah finishes with floral notes of lavender and violet. Twenty months of aging in French barrels give the final touches of spices and mocha. A wine to enjoy but great with Foie gras agnolotti in veal consommé, matured cheeses. Suckling writes in his review: ".....Better to give this time, but already a beautiful, juicy red to drink. Drink or hold" Of course this is an ideal wine with the finest meat, but actually this wine is so beautiful that this should actually be drunk solo. This wine deserves your full attention.

About Vina Vik Winery

In 2004, Alex and Carrie Vik started an entire team with the audacious goal of making one of the best wines in the world. After a two-year search, the best terroir was found in Chile's Millahue Valley. Millahue Valley means "Place of Gold". The vineyard is planted in the interior of the valley and offers a variety of terroirs and small microclimates cooled by the coastal breeze. The vineyards consist of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah.

The winery was designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic in collaboration with Alex and Carrie Vik. It has been carefully designed to have minimal impact on the landscape. A state-of-the-art, highly durable, technologically creative and visually stunning experience. The winery was completed in 2014. Under the leadership of the Chilean Patrick Valette (wine consultant, Château Pavie and with French roots) and the current winemaker Cristián Vallejo involved in the project from the start, a beautiful company has been set up since 2005. We work very sustainably, harvesting is completely manual and fermentation takes place naturally without added yeasts.

Today, VIK produces four exceptional red wines and a rosé. They are justifiably very proud that VIK, La Piu Belle, Milla Cala and "A" have received ratings well into the 90's such as 99 points from James Suckling, a Master Medal from The Drink Business and Platinum and Gold Medals of the Decanter, along with many other awards.

A mirror of water in the wine cellar cools the barrel cellar without consuming energy. The translucent roof makes it possible to work during the day without artificial light. Inspired by the purity of our wines, we have developed the concept of "Barroir". We roast used and new French barrels with oak from our hills and build our own barrels in our cooperage. These barrels made by the estate embody the taste of the terroir. Because they approach all work holistically, they only use fallen hundred-year-old trees that can be found on the immense estate. In 2019, Wine Enthusiast Magazine unveiled their 20th Annual Wine Star Awards and named VIK the Wine Star for 'Best Winery Experience'. In 2021, the competition ranked VIK as 8th prestigious winery among the 50 World's Best Vineyards and iViña Vik has therefore very quickly joined the icon wines from Chile and is now also among the global top.
