2020 Talinay Vineyard Chardonnay, Tabalí, Limarí, Chile

Original price was: £19.50.Current price is: £15.70. inc. VAT

Established in 2002, Tabalí is a pioneer and iconic winery situated in Limarí, on the edge of the Atacama Desert in one of the northernmost vineyard regions of Chile. This Chardonnay alone has won three gongs with previous vintages and has now been awarded 96 points in Decanter magazine and beaten a number of wines that are over twice the price.

Hidden in a small valley, around 12km from the Atlantic Ocean, is the Talinay vineyard. It is the only vineyard site in Chile to be planted on chalky limestone soil and produces elegant and refined wines. With the sea breeze helping to cool the climate the temperature here never goes over 23.5C and the proximity to the Atacama desert means that the vineyard is virtually rot and disease free so there is no need for chemicals.

In the winery the grapes are fermented in French oak barrels and then aged in them for 10 months. This ‘terroir’ and production technique is about as close as it gets to Southern Hemisphere white Burgundy and it is impossible not to think of this hallowed region when tasting this delicious Chardonnay. Below is the Decanter review.

“This youthful, lively coastal Chardonnay has notes of fine herbs, green apple and oyster shell on the nose, with a persistent, invigorating finish. Pared down but sophisticated, with great regional typicity and vibrancy. Incredible value too. Drink 2021-2023.” 96 points – Amanda Barnes, Decanter Magazine

Only one wine scored higher than this (97 points) and this had a price tag of circa £70 a bottle! So you have to agree that £18 for the Tabalí seems like a bit of a bargain.
