Undurraga Trama Pinot Noir 2016
- Textured, savoury
We’ve been ordering wines from Chile for years now - cabernet, sauv blanc, bubbles etc. But this is the first time we’ve found a pinot noir from this long sliver of nation that we thought was worthy of our mofo’s palates.
It comes from a single vineyard in the San Antonio Valley planted just nine kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. The soil is similar in composition to parts of the Willamette Valley in Oregon where marine sediment, granite and sand are the main components. This allows for superior root development and drainage but pushes the vines to struggle a little, encouraging concentration of flavour in the berries.
This is small batch stuff, fermented with indigenous yeast, and aged carefully in large format third-use French oak. In other words, let the fruit speak for itself! We’re not the only ones who have taken notice of this exciting South American pinot project, as evidenced by exceptional reviews from Tim Atkin MW and Decanter. Check out what Decanter had to say below.
“Now this is special! herbs. The palate is perfectly pitched, boasting a core of vibrant energy, simultaneously crunchy and gently bittersweet. Food-friendly with great potential for development.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
