Undurraga is one of Chile’s pioneering wine estates, and the Sibaris offers rich, smoky silky version of great value Pinot Noir from Chile’s coastal Leyda Valley. Pair with robust braises or mushroom pizza.
From Chile’s cool, foggy and windy coastal region comes this smoky, silky Pinot Noir. Chile enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate, but Pacific Ocean stretches can be very chilly, feeling more like cool-climate zones. That’s where the Leyda Valley is, home to Undurraga’s Gran Reserva Pinot Noir ‘Sibaris’. Pinot prefers cool temperatures and limestone, Leyda has plenty of both. Brilliant ruby red in the glass, the aromas are intense with red cherries, grilled herbs and oak spice. The flavours are a fusion of dark berried fruit, subtle smoke, earthy mushrooms, all heightened by bright acidity and spicy warmth. The finish shows the silky texture that Pinot Noir can achieve, and will match any meaty braise, mushroom ragout, or salmon with sundried tomato pesto. From one of Chile’s early pioneering wineries, this value-priced wine is a testament to Pinot Noir’s suitability to the cool Pacific coastal zone.
