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 grapes are grown in the Valle Central, where the land is flat, deep and fertile,
which makes it particularly suitable for the production of reds: Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot and Carménère. The soil is sedimentary, with an average texture, clayey loam
and good drainage properties. The climate is humid Mediterranean, with moderately
rainy winters, warm and dry summers and cool nights. The average annual rainfall is
710 millimetres. These conditions ensure the production of healthy grapes with good
varietal flavour characteristics.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness and sorted to ensure only the healthy
fruit was vinified. The fruit was then carefully crushed and destemmed. Fermentation
took place in stainless steel vats, at controlled temperatures ranging between 28°C
and 30°C, lasting for seven days. Post fermentation maceration took place over four
days, in order to extract the aromatics of the Carmenère grape.


Tasting Note
An intense violet colour, this Carmenère delivers exuberant red fruit aromas, through to
a fruity palate with vibrant notes of cherry. With a smooth texture this is a great easy
drinking wine.
