Grape(s): Carignan (Carinena)
Localization: Maule Valley, Chile
Tasting Notes: Complex and engaging with ripe plum and berry fruits, dried herbs and toasted notes. Supple tannins and vibrant acidity carry this complexity into a long finish.
The Domain: The Undurraga family owns over 2,000 acres of prime vineyards in Chile's foremost appellations, the Maipo and Colchagua Valleys. Since the beginning in 1885, the Undurraga tradition has taken hold, producing outstanding wines from some of the finest raw material on earth - grapes nurtured in the earth and sun of these fertile valleys.
The Undurragas were early pioneers in Chilean winemaking, planting French varietals before the turn on the century and using wood barrels crafted by a master French cooper to age the wines and bring forward rich bouquet and flavors. In 1903, they were first to export wines to the U.S.
Undurraga's Santa Ana Estate, pictured on every label, is a proud expression of their long tradition of quality and innovation. Over the last few years, Undurraga has heavily invested in prime vineyards and facilities.
