  • 2018 Sauvignon Blanc ‘Sibaris’ Gran Reserva , UndurragaWhite Wine

    2018 Sauvignon Blanc ‘Sibaris’ Gran Reserva , Undurraga


    This exceptional single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has a complex nose of zesty grapefruit and lime is accompanied by hints of black pepper and delicate floral aromas, with herbaceous and mineral undertones. Harmoniously balanced on the palate with delicious acidity offering mouthwatering citrus and mineral tones through to a persistent finish.

    The grapes are grown in the Lomas de Leyda vineyard, situated in the Leyda Valley. The climate is moderated by the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean and summer coastal fogs which last until midday. This effect extends the ripening period, ensuring slow ripening and the development of intense and very fresh flavours and aromas. Average rainfall in the Leyda Valley is 250 millimetres. The soil is finely textured and of low fertility. The upper layer is thin loamy clay, with a layer of cracked clay over decomposed granite, which has a varied mineral structure. The valley has gentle slopes with areas exposed to differing levels of sunlight exposure.

  • 2015 Chardonnay, Falaris Hill Vineyard, Viña LeydaWhite Wine

    2015 Chardonnay, Falaris Hill Vineyard, Viña Leyda


    This single-vineyard wines name is inspired by Phalaris, a type of grass that grows in the dry coastal lands in central and southern Chile. It begins to grow with the first rains of fall. During the summer, it turns a greenish-yellow colour very similar to that of the Viña Leyda Chardonnay.

    With a refined and complex bouquet, this wine displays ripe citrus fruit notes like orange and tangerine along with hints of chestnuts. On the palate, it is creamy, with a tangy acidity in the finish.  Its minerality lends freshness, while oak notes reflect the ageing process carried out 100% in French oak barrels for ten months. Throughout the winemaking process, this wine maintains its natural acidity and freshness.

  • 2013 Pinot Noir, ‘Las Brisas Vineyard’, Viña LeydaRed Wine

    2013 Pinot Noir, ‘Las Brisas Vineyard’, Viña Leyda


    Pinot Noir Las Brisas is perfumed with floral and seductive fresh red fruit aromas intermingling with herbal and spiced notes such as white pepper. The oak is smooth, almost unnoticeable, allowing the fruit to stand out. The palate is fresh and fruity with a vibrant, juicy texture.

    This wine is made by Viviana Navarrete the exceptionally talented winemaker behind Leyda, from estate vineyards in the Leyda Valley.  Pinot Noir Las Brisas (Breezes) comes from a selection of two blocks with a southwest exposure that thrive in a perfect microclimate: The western exposure provides a direct breeze from the Pacific (hence the wine’s name), and the southern exposure provides less direct sunlight, thus a slower grape maturation. It is one of the last Pinots to be harvested. The soils’ surface contains granite, directly related to the wine’s vibrancy and juiciness.

  • 2019 Syrah ‘TH’, UndurragaRed Wine

    2019 Syrah ‘TH’, Undurraga


    Cool climate Syrah with spicy, peppery aromas and notes of fresh wild herbs and subtle tar surround a core of fresh raspberries and wild berries. Mineral on the palate, with a tense tannin structure and a vibrant acidity that gives freshness and identity to the wine.

    Located to the west of the coastal mountain range, the Leyda Valley has gently rolling hills, exposing the vines to varying levels of sunlight and drainage profiles. The soils are developed from granite rock on the coastal batholith formed 200 million years ago in the Jurassic period. For this wine, the grapes were selected from a small plot of Syrah grown in finely textured soils. The top layer is shallow loamy clay with poor fertility, followed by a sedimentary ‘crack’ clay profile. The subsoil is decomposed granite rock with a diverse mineral structure. The plot is densely planted with 10,000 vines per hectare of French Clones 174 and 470 on a north-facing slope exposed to the sun. The yield was two kilograms per plant, which favours the concentration necessary to achieve a wine with great richness.

  • 2020 Sauvignon Blanc ‘TH’, UndurragaWhite Wine

    2020 Sauvignon Blanc ‘TH’, Undurraga


    Head winemaker Rafael Urrejola has spent a great deal of time understanding the diversity of Chile’s vineyard sites; the result is the emblematic TH – ‘Terroir Hunter’ range.

    This Sauvignon Blanc from Leyda Valley has enticing aromas of citrus fruit, lime and mandarin that 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 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 influence of the sea and soil combined with slow ripening make for an intense and alluring coloured wine.  A nose of red fruits, sweet cherries and strawberries, along with aromas of toasted hazelnuts and rose petals.  A touch of vanilla and spice from the well-integrated oak completes this perfectly.

    An elegant, delicate but structured palate, with soft tannins and a long finish.  A world-class Pinot Noir.

Clusters are carefully selected to keep yields extremely low. Less than 1.75 pounds of fruit is produced by each plant.
