Producer Note
Undurraga is one of Chile’s most prestigious wineries, consistently receiving high scores
from top wine critics. Founded in 1885, Undurraga owns 1,350 hectares of estate
vineyard in Chile’s premium wine producing areas such as Leyda, Cauquenes and
Itata. Head winemaker Rafael Urrejola has spent a great deal of time researching and
understanding the diversity of Chile’s vineyard sites; the result is the emblematic ‘Terroir
Hunter’ range. Undurraga cultivates their vineyards with respect for the environment
and follow a philosophy of minimal intervention in the cellar in order to showcase the
terroir.
Vineyard
The vineyard is situated in the Valle de Leyda, to the west of the Coastal Mountain
range, 14 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. The cooling influence of the Pacific
breezes and the summer morning coastal fog extend the grape's growing period. In
the summer, the average temperatures rarely exceed 25°C and this ensures that the
grapes ripen slowly, developing fresh and intense flavours and aromas and a lower
potential alcohol content. The Pinot Noir vines are planted in soils with a shallow clay
surface profile and poor fertility, with a cracked clay sedimentary layer. The subsoil is
decomposed granite rock and has a diverse mineral structure.
Winemaking
The hand-harvested grapes were destemmed and gently crushed, before undergoing
a cold maceration in order to achieve the elegant and attractive pale pink colour.
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks lasting for two weeks at temperatures of
16 to 17°C to maximise the varietal aromas and flavours. After fermentation the wine
was clarified and stabilised, then the liqueur de tirage was added prior to the
secondary fermentation which took place using the Charmat method. The wine
remained on its lees for six months, before the liqueur d'expédition was added and the
wine was bottled.
Tasting Note
Pale blush in colour, the nose offers abundant notes of red fruits combined with subtle
floral hints of rose. A delicate wine with a dry palate, persistent, even bubbles and a
wonderful fruit sensation enveloping the creamy texture.
