Tabali Pedrogoso Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2020
- Fresh, juicy
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 me when I 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.
Here’s Tabalí chardonnay from their Gran Reserva Pedrogoso range, sourced from a small vineyard in the Maipo Valley. Here you can witness vines rooted in alluvial limestone-heavy soil and surrounded by cacti. It’s quite a sight to see. Fruit is hand-harvested and aged in stainless steel to preserve freshness and purity. There’s an intense mineral component on the nose, citrus and pineapple drive the palate and you’ll find just a touch of salinity on the finish due to the Atlantic’s influence.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
