Underraga Sauvignon Blanc TH 2019

A vibrant, flinty and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc with pronounced aromas of passionfruit, lime and mandarin underpinned by spicy notes of blackcurrant leaf.

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 were sourced from small plots within selected vineyards in the Leyda Valley, 14 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean, where the vines are cooled by the South Pacific breezes and the morning coastal summer fog. Located to the west of the coastal mountain range, the Leyda Valley's finely textured soils are developed from granite rock on the coastal batholith formed 200 million years ago during the Jurassic period. The thin upper layer is loamy clay and has little fertility. The subsoil in these plots is sedimentary and calcareous, which is unusual in this coastal area, as it is generally granitic. Small plots of low-yielding clones- Davis 1, Davis 5 and French clones 242, 107 and 376- are planted on west facing slopes which are exposed to the wind, keeping the vines healthy. Careful canopy management protects the clusters from direct sunlight, thus enhancing freshness, preserving the fruit expression and the character of the terroir.

Winemaking - The grapes were rigorously sorted to ensure that only the healthy, ripe clusters underwent the cold maceration process, followed by gentle crushing. The free run and lightly pressed juices were chilled down to 6 to 8°C and then cold stabilised for 48 hours. The juice was then racked to stainless steel tanks, where it was fermented with selected yeasts at low temperatures of 13°C to 15°C for 18 days. 10% of the wine was fermented in second and third use French oak barrels, adding complexity and structure. Aged for five months on its lees, in order to contribute greater texture and aromatic layers.

Tasting Note - Enticing aromas of citrus fruit, lime and mandarin are underpinned by spicy notes of blackcurrant leaf, green chilli pepper and chalk. This is a vibrant and juicy Sauvignon Blanc with refreshing, zesty acidity and delicate mineral notes. The Underraga Sauvignon Blanc TH is a serious white wine of immense quality and style.

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.
