Underraga Chardonnay TH 2018

Fresh aromas of camomile flowers, lemon, melon and pear are complemented by touches of toasted hazelnut on the buttery palate and exquisitely balanced by a saline finish.

Producer Note - 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 researching and 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.

Vineyard - The grapes for the Underraga Cjardonnay TH were sourced from a selected vineyard in Quebrada Seca, located on the western side of the Limarí Valley, 380 kilometres to the north of Santiago. This relatively new region for high quality wines has a marine-influenced, semi-arid climate, with misty mornings, windy afternoons and cool nights. Daily temperatures between January and March rarely exceed 30°C, as constant breezes sweep into the valley from the Pacific Ocean bringing a cooling influence. Thus the conditions are ideal for slow ripening and preserving the fresh aromas and flavours of the grapes. The high intensity of sunlight resulting from clear blue skies almost all year round encourages the grapes to ripen completely with concentrated flavours.

Winemaking - The grapes were rigorously sorted, ensuring that only ripe clusters, free from rot or sun burn, underwent gentle pressing with a controlled pre-oxidation of the must. The free run and lightly pressed juices were chilled to 4°C to 6°C and cold stabilised for 48 hours. The must was then racked to egg shaped concrete tanks and large Burgundian oak barrels, of which 16% were new, where fermentation took place with natural yeasts at temperatures of 15°C to 17°C. After fermentation, the wine was left on its lees and aged for 10 months with regular bâtonnage, imparting the wine with more body, weight and identity.

Tasting Note - The Underraga Chardonnay TH has fresh aromas of camomile flowers, lemon, melon and pear which are complemented by touches of toasted hazelnut. Smooth and creamy on the palate, delicate notes of oak spice are exquisitely balanced by coastal freshness through to an elegant finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
