Undurraga, Carménère 2018



Undurraga is one of Chile’s most prestigious wineries, consistently receiving high scores from top wine critics. Founded in 1885, Undurraga owns 1,350ha of estate vineyard in Chile’s premium wine producing areas such as Leyda, Cauquenes and Itata. The grapes for this carménère are grown in the Valle Central, where the land is flat, deep and fertile, which makes it particularly suitable for the production of reds. 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 carménère grape. It’s an intense violet colour, and 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.
