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 come from the Valle Central, where the soil’s origin is alluvial, with a
medium texture. It is loamy to sandy loam and provides good drainage. The land is flat,
of average depth and is moderately fertile. The climate is sub-humid Mediterranean
with mild winters and an annual average rainfall of 350 millimetres. The summers are
temperate and dry, with cool nights which create excellent conditions for an extended
ripening period. This encourages the production of healthy grapes which mature
gradually, accumulating good sugar levels, with balancing natural acidity and
expressive aromas.


Winemaking
Once the grapes were harvested, 50% were pressed as whole clusters, while the
remaining 50% were gently crushed and placed into stainless steel tanks for cold
maceration at 4°C, which lasted for six hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel
vats, at temperatures ranging between 16 and 18°C and lasted for between 18 and 22
days. The wine was aged on its fine lees for 45 days imparting texture and complexity.
