U by Undurraga
Grape Varieties :
Reception: Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were hand picked and placed in 500-kilo bins. Once de-stemmed, the grapes were carefully crushed and deposited in the fermentation tanks at a low temperature, for approximately 36 hours. After this, the juice slightly dyed was drained and separated from its skin for the fermentation process.
Fermentation: The process took place in stainless steel vats, separating the solid parts with similar conditions to any fermentation of white juices, for 18 to 22 days, at a temperature ranging between 15º and 17º C. in order to extract the maximum varietal aromas and flavours.
