Tasting Notes

This Viognier presents rich aromas of citrus and dried apricot, fresh pears and white peaches, plus hints of candied fruit. Delivers on the palate as well as the nose, with floral, honeyed and citrus flavours combining with chalky minerality so typical of Limari. Bright and expressive, this has a soft rounded texture and great purity and represents sensational value.

Producer details

Situated in one of the northernmost vineyard regions in Chile, approaching the edge of the Atacama Desert, Tabalí commands a unique location in the heart of the Limarí Valley. The local ‘Camanchaca’ fog blankets the Limarí area each morning and afternoon coastal breezes bring cool air which moderates the ripening of the grapes. The result is a range of truly distinctive wines with elegance, restraint and minerality.

In the vineyard

The grapes are pressed as whole bunches and the must is then decanted at low temperature for 12 hours prior to being transferred to a stainless steel vat. To start the alcoholic fermentation, selected yeasts are added maintaining a strict temperature control below 18 Degrees Celcius.

In the winery

The grapes were whole bunch pressed to obtain faster decantation of the must and greener colours maintaining the acidity of the grapes intact. The must is then decanted at low temperature for 12 hours and racked to a stainless steel tank. To start the alcoholic fermentation, selected yeasts are added maintaining controlled temperatures. After the fermentation the wine was kept in stainless steel tanks until the bottling.

Food Recommendations

This beautifully aromatic and delicate wine is a good match to delicate and rich seafood such as langoustine but will equally stand up to aromatic Thai and Pan Asian cuisine. Try seabass in ginger.

In the press

2013 Vintage: "With intense, ripe peach and apricot aromas on the nose, alongside minerals, spice and floral notes, the palate shows a good balance between stone fruit and spice flavours" Somellier Wine Awards 2014, Judges Comments 2012 Vintage: "Lovely restrained stone fruit nose. Flavours of peach, almonds and marzipan - a restrained, delicate expression." Judges comments, DWWA 2013 2011 Vintage: "What shone here and won Tabalí Gold was ambition: a tricky grape done commendably well at a very good price. This is aromatic and exotic with 'peach, apricot, honey, almonds, long acidity and a pleasant finish,' according to Madison's Irina Atanasova. 'Melon and pineapple on a very ripe palate,' added consultant Angus MacNab." Sommelier Wine Awards 2012
