Country and Region:
Wine of Chile - Produced from grapes carefully selected from prime vineyard locations in San Antonio (50%) and Maipo Valley (50%).
Grape Varieties :
After undergoing a rigorous selection, the grapes were crushed and placed in cold maceration for eight hours, before being pressed and left to ferment.
The must, placed in stainless steel vats, was inoculated
with selected yeast. The fermentation process takes 20 days, at temperatures ranging between 13° and 17° C. in order to extract the maximum varietal aromas.
‘Aliwen’ means ‘Sacred Tree’ in the language of the ‘Mapuche’, indigenous people of Southern Chile. For them, this tree symbolizes the union between the Cosmos and the Earth. Undurraga chose the name for this light, easy drinking range of wines, produced by winemaker Carlos Concha, as a metaphor for Chile itself and the country’s majestic biodiversity. Each wine originates from different valleys, each with their own unique personality. In order to ensure that ‘Scared Tree’ is more than just an abstract concept, Undurraga have partnered with the Reforest Patagonia Foundation. For each bottle of Aliwen wine purchased, anywhere in the world, Undurraga will make a donation to the campaign to reforest native trees in Patagonia.
