Why do we love this wine?
We’re ecstatic about Tabalí here at the ‘Fo. It’s the first time their wines have been in Australia (as far as we know). Their chardonnay was the initial attention grabber (trust us when we say that South America is doing some incredible stuff with chardy right now) but once we tasted the entire range, we were smitten. They have three main vineyards spanning the width of the narrow country of Chile. Talinay is their tiny coastal vineyard and the source of chardonnay and pinot noir that sits amongst the best in the world. Dom is in the Maipo Valley and a great location for elegant and cellarworthy cabernet. Finally there’s Río Hurtado, situated at 1600 metres as you head up the Andes. From this vineyard comes malbec, although made famous in Argentina, sees some of the best yields from this plot in Chile.
This is Tabalí’s Reserva cabernet, sourced from the Dom vineyard in Maipo Valley. For those in the know, it isn’t news that Chile provides some of the best bang for your buck cabernet anywhere in the world. The complexity, balance and length found in the price of a weeknight quaffer is unrivalled. This has lifted blackberry and blackcurrant, buttressed by some sneaky spicy notes and chalky fine tannins. You’d be hard pressed to find this wines compete at this price no matter where you look.
