  • Herbal and spicy notes give way to an intense expression of fresh raspberries and cherries with subtle hints of green pepper and a fine, granitic minerality. Notes of dark chocolate intermingled with sweet berries lead to refined, smooth tannins and a vibrant acidity that lends a fresh, juicy mouthfeel.

The grapes come from a carefully selected 4.05-hectare vineyard in Peumo, on the western side of the Valle de Cachapoal, in an area known for producing the best Carmenare wines in Chile. The climate in Peumo suits Carmenare; its latitude ensures high temperatures throughout the ripening period, but its proximity to the Pacific Ocean results in gentle breezes that encourage the grapes to retain acidity, resulting in fresh flavours and aromas in the wine. The vineyard is situated at 171 metres above sea level, where the red clay soils are one metre deep and retain moisture to nourish the vines. Below the clay profile lies decomposing granite rock with greater drainage, enabling excess winter and springtime moisture to drain for better plant balance. The grapes come from a small, low-yielding plot of ungrafted vines planted in 1998. The vines are subjected to strict irrigation control during the ripening period. The yield is just 1.7 kilograms per plant, providing the necessary concentration for a deeply flavoured wine.

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 and is certified by Sustainable Wines of Chile. 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 to showcase the terroir.
