Description

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 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.

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. 

This unoaked Chardonnay offers elegantly perfumed aromas lead to a fresh and floral palate, with a hint of honey and melon.
