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.

This heavy bubbly has aromas of matchstick, burnt grass and apple. It feels jagged and foamy, with mealy apple and hay flavors. The finish is fresh and lively, but it turns bitter as it fades.
This is bold and bullish, but also acidic and raw in feel. The opening berry aroma conveys a wild side, and the mouth is racy and grating, with the feel of fruit skin and flavors of plum and cherry. This captures the rugged, hard-core side of Maule Carignan.
Raw and spicy aromas greet you, with floral, more rosy scents offering backup. The palate is fresh to the point of crisp, but not very detailed or stylish. And the finish is like hitting a cement pad without padding. Seems a little rough and tumble, and not very detailed.
Rough at first, with leathery aromas and hints of bitter chocolate. Which all goes to say: Where’s the snappy cherry fruit? It just doesn’t seem to be here. What you do get is light raspberry and tea notes, and then some oak and herbal character on the finish.
Attractive and correct berry, plum and cocoa aromas open to a plummy palate, with a round mouthfeel. The cocoa and toast finish has easy tannins. Has all the right elements, but in a rather simple expression, wanting intensity.
