40% of the grapes for this wine come from the Talinay vineyard and 60% from the Espinal vineyard. The Talinay vineyard is located in the Limarí Valley on the indomitable cool coast of northern Chile, It is next to the Fray Jorge National Park, in an area that UNESCO has declared a World Biosphere Reserve. The Espinal vineyard is located on an alluvial terrace that reveals different levels of clay at the surface. This gives way to a matrix of alluvial soil (volcanic rock which was rounded by erosion as it was carried many kilometres from high up in the Andes mountains). This soil is very stony but has veins of limestone in the form of dust, mainly consisting of calcium carbonate. The harvest began in the second week of April, when this variety had reached the optimum aromatic and phenolic ripeness. Later the clusters were carefully selected. The fermentation took place in French oak barrels and the wine remained there, undergoing battonage until it was bottled.
A refreshing and bright wine with rocky minerality and white stone fruit on the nose. The palate is structured with precise acidity and an unique mineral complexity which is the limestone stamp of all great Tabalí wines. Lime and stone fruit flavours provide fantastic drinkability whilst gentle oak character adds yet another layer of complexity.
Great with fresh seafood and fish dishes.
