Vinification: Once the grapes arrive at the cellars, the best clusters are selected and the whole clusters placed directly in pneumatic presses. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks - filled with must and injected with selected yeasts. After two days, the must was transferred to 225, 228 and 300-litre capacity French oak barrels, where the fermentation took place during a period of some 14 days. The wine was kept in the barrels for nine months and was subject to batonage, so as to move the lees periodically in order to lend complexity and creaminess to our wine.

ABV: 13.5%

Closure: Screw Cap

Note: The Sibaris range is named after the Ancient Greek city of ‘Sibaris’, which was located in Magna Grecia, today’s Southern Italy. The city amassed great wealth thanks to the fertile land and busy port and its inhabitants (Sybarites) became a byword for hedonism and opulent luxury rather like the modern day ‘Bon Vivant’. Undurraga dedicate this sophisticated range to all those who enjoy the good life and regard life as one long search for pleasure. Sibaris is hot on the heels of the T.H wines in terms of awards, the Chardonnay has just picked up Gold medals at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2016 as has the Carménère which also scooped Gold at the IWSC 2015 going on to win the overall Carménère Trophy. The Sauvignon Blanc too won a Gold Medal and a Regional Trophy at the 2015 Decanter World Wine Awards.
