Viña Vik Milla Cala

Holism and the pursuit of excellence go hand in hand. The infinite quality of the wine led Viña VIK to produce a second wine as a tridute to its origin: the encounter between the old and the new world. Milla means gold in Mapuche language while Cala is the Spanish translation of the Norwegian name Vik. With an irresistible character, expressing fruit and structure, Milla Cala is a harmonious blend with a persistent elegance which mantains a flawless equilidrium between aroma and taste.

Tasting Notes

Milla Cala 2015 is an intense wine, with a complex and elegant bouquet. Lush ripe aromas of strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cassis merge with notes of plums and almonds and finish with a subtle touch of black and white pepper and coffee beans imparted by the French oak. The mouthfeel is vibrantly fresh with perfectly balanced acidity. This wine is tense and linear with subtle round tannins. With a defined body and structure, this wine’s finish is pleasant and persistent.
