This fabulous Chilean Sauvignon Blanc made not only the Gold List at the Sommelier Wine Awards 2013 but also the “By the Glass picks for the pub!

"Great varietal typicity and Summer drinking potential” “Fresh apple and white melon mix with grassy notes and hints of white flowers,” said Sara Bachiorri of The Glasshouse Restaurant, adding 'The dry fruity, palate has good minerality and a long finish."

Viña Undurraga was established in 1885 by Francisco Undurraga Vicuña, who that year acquired a property called “The Houses of San Vicente”, located in Talagante, 34 kms. from Santiago, Chile’s capital city. Here, he planted vineyards,with vines that he selected and brought personally from the regions of the Rhine in Germany and from Bordeaux, in France.

The wines bottled in Santa Ana since 1885 have won a reputation, both in Chile and worldwide – In fact, Undurraga was one of the first Chilean wineries to export abroad. As of 2006 Undurraga held 900 hectares in Maipo valley and in Colchagua, with plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Carmenère, Chardonnay and Sémillon.
