Another offering from Tabali winery, their Sauvignon Blanc is simply divine.  The vineyards are located just 12km from the Pacific Ocean; this unique location provides truly excellent conditions for cool climate viticulture and is the only vineyard site in Chile to be planted over pure chalky limestone soils – known for producing refine and elegant wines.  The constant breeze that drifts from the ocean over the vines creates the coolest vineyard conditions in Chile – maximum average temperatures in the summer months never go above 23.5°C so the harvest is 2-3 weeks later than in other regions.  The grapes ripen gently in the cool summer days, refreshed by the ocean breezes and irrigated by the local mist, the famous ‘Camanchaca’.  Proximity to the Atacama Desert also means that the vineyards are virtually rot and disease free, removing the need for use of pesticides.

This Sauvignon Blanc is barrel-fermented, so has a unique character – herbaceous notes of gentle elderflower on the nose with a palate of striking acidity with clean flavours of lemon, lime and nettle leaf.  The pure limestone soils show through in the wine’s exquisite minerality – you’d be forgiven for blind-tasting this and guessing Pouilly Fumé.  Enjoy with fresh seafood dishes such as Ceviche, or with a warm Goat’s Cheese Salad.
