Underraga Extra Brut Sparkling Wine NV

This fresh, vibrant and fruity Blanc de Blancs reveals delicate aromas of citrus blossom and white floral notes over a creamy background.

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 vineyard is situated in the Valle de Leyda, to the west of the Coastal Mountain range, 14 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. The cooing influence of the Pacific breezes and the summer morning coastal fog extend the grape's growing period. In the summer, the average temperatures rarely exceed 25°C and this ensures that the grapes ripen slowly, developing fresh and intense flavours and aromas and a lower potential alcohol content. The Chardonnay vines are planted in soils with a shallow clay surface profile and poor fertility, with a cracked clay sedimentary layer. The subsoil is decomposed granite rock and has a diverse mineral structure. The soil where the Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted is very similar but it also has stone encrustations among the clay, which has excellent water retention properties to nourish the vines through the warm summer.

Winemaking - The hand-harvested clusters were pneumatically pressed. Each variety was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at temperatures of 14 to 18°C to maximize the varietal aromas and flavours. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was matured over its fine lees for around four months. The wines were blended and the liqueur de tirage was added prior to the secondary fermentation, which took place using the Charmat method. After the second fermentation, the wine remained over its lees for 75 days. The liqueur d'expédition was added prior to bottling.

Tasting Note - This fresh, vibrant Blanc de Blancs is pale golden in colour with fine, persistent bubbles. The nose reveals delicate aromas of citrus blossom and white floral notes over a mineral background. Pleasantly creamy mouthfeel with notes of brioche through to an exceptionally long 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.
