Undurraga TH Cabernet Franc 2017 Maipo Chile
Undurraga has made a name for itself under winemaker Rafael Urrejola by pushing the boundaries of Chilean winemaking and viticulture. This cabernet franc is a world away from the crunchy Loire style, being more closely modelled on a right bank Bordeaux (if anything). The flavour is toasty with assam tea, dark tobacco and a dry and textured palate carrying notes of cassis and perfumed black fruit, framed by grainy tannins and with good concentration. A great example of new wave Chile.
