Winemaker's Notes

A limpid golden yellow colored wine. To the nose it is fresh, intense and complex, where mineral aromas predominate elegantly complemented by hints of honey and citric fruits that evoke a smooth maturity with a balanced acidity, this Chardonnay has a toasted finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Chardonnay Reserva Especial shows off the potential for Chardonnay in Limari. It delivers Cote de Beaune like aromatics of mineral, toast, white fruits, and hazel nut. Elegant, intense, with lively natural acidity, this lengthy effort may well evolve for 1-2 years and can be enjoyed through 2014. Tabali is producing high quality wines from the newly developing cool-climate region of Limari. "

I like this Chardonnay somewhat. It is light and easy drinking. Went well with the halibut and scallops, but it was a little non-descriptive. I actually don't recall the details of the flavors or notes. I will not buy again not because it is bad, but because there are better ones. I would give it 89 instead of 91. Revised: I just whacked myself on the head because I am ordering it again in search of a cheap good white wine, and my friends liked it.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
