Undurraga Winery was founded in 1885 by Don Francisco Undurraga, one of the pioneers of winemaking in Chile. With plants he brought over from France and Germany, and under the supervision of the renowned French viticulturist M. Pressac, he developed the first Undurraga Vineyards on his Santa Ana Estate in the heart of Maipo Valley. The first grape varieties that were planted included Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer and by 1903 they were the first Chilean winery to ship to the US according to our Undurraga wine reviews. Today the Undurraga family owns over 2,000 acres of prime vineyards in the Maipo and Colchagua Valleys and Undurraga wines are present in over 70 countries on five continents. Undurraga wines are known for providing quality and value across their entire portfolio according to our Undurraga wine ratings.

Fairly earthy on the nose, with some compost and leafiness to go with chunky berry fruit aromas. The palate is full, simple, chunky and a touch choppy, with cherry, raspberry and vanilla flavors. Creamy if a bit sticky on the finish, but mature and ready to drink
Starts out with distinct candied aromas of milk chocolate-covered raspberry or cherry, which is fine in a drugstore candy sampler but not great in a wine bottle. Things settle and darken up on the palate, where there’s racy red berry fruit and minerally notes. Coffee, mocha and sweet oak are most prominent on the finish.
Petrol leads the nose, which also deals pear and melon in a solid facsimile of Alsace. The palate is lemony and cut by streaking acidity, while the flavors of citrus run tart and monotone. Finishes zesty, with green apple and lemon.
A little murky and muddled on the nose, this has an earthy-berry aroma, with a hint of floral-based perfume. It offers acidity and solidity on the palate, which is backed by standard black-fruit flavors, with undertones of vanilla and raw oak. Very good, but it’s a bit oaky.
Rustic smelling, this has a leafy scent and red fruit aromas akin to cherry and raspberry. The mouthfeel is tight, jumpy and alert, and the flavors of cassis and plum set up a rugged, scratchy finish, with notes of carob, vanilla and coffee.
Crisp and smooth in the mouth, with clean, unblemished flavors of chocolate and cassis wrapped around a core of firm acidity. Lacks the herbal notes that seem to abound in Chilean Cabernet.
A medium-weight wine, with aromas of plum, cocoa and tomato leaf complemented by flavors of black cherries and fresh herbs. Supple and smooth-textured, picking up hints of black tea leaves on the finish.
This is fairly full, with plum and berry aromas and barrel influences that turn charred and minty upon airing. The mouthfeel is solid, while flavors of resiny oak carry the front and back palate, with an herbal berry flavor sitting between the folds. This is woody and resiny on the finish.
