Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant ruby-red in color, Undurraga Merlot is characterized by a very fine, distinctive varietal aroma. On the palate it is smooth and well-balanced, with the herbal notes typical of the grape married to delicious, plump fruit richness. These are confirmed in the subtle, persistent finish.
My Notes:

About Undurraga:

The Undurraga family owns over 2,000 acres of prime vineyards in Chile's foremost appellations, the Maipo and Colchagua Valleys. Since the beginning in 1885, the Undurraga tradition has taken hold, producing outstanding wines from some of the finest raw material on earth - grapes nurtured in the earth and sun of these fertile valleys.

The Undurragas were early pioneers in Chilean winemaking, planting French varietals before the turn on the century and using wood barrels crafted by a master French cooper to age the wines and bring forward rich bouquet and flavors. In 1903, they were first to export wines to the U.S.

Undurraga's Santa Ana Estate, pictured on every label, is a proud expression of their long tradition of quality and innovation. Over the last few years, Undurraga has heavily invested in prime vineyards and facilities.
