The Kalfu ranges are linked to the sea creatures depicted on the labels:
Molu means ‘where the sun sets’ – historically it was believed that during the day stars would hide in the sea and become starfish.
The grapes were harvested by night and then carefully transported to the winery. The grapes first underwent a cold maceration for 6 to 7 days to increase contact between the juice and the skins. Next they were fermented in open tanks at a controlled temperature of between 22°C and 26°C which permitted extraction of the aromas characteristic of Pinot Noir. 15% of the wine was aged in French oak for 8 months. The rest was kept in stainless steel tanks.
Deep and intense ruby red with violet hints. This is fruity and expressive, its cherry and raspberries notes complemented with a soft, spicy character and a vanilla touch from the oak ageing.
