Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Dense nose of pomelo, thyme flowers, and lemon. Concentrated, mineral driven palate with more layers of citrus and floral notes. Finishes clean with bright natural acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Talinay Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a single vineyard planted on limestone and located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. It offers up an alluring perfume of grapefruit, spring flowers, and a note of herbs. This is followed by a crisp, lively, concentrated wine that delivers more complexity and length than the Reserva bottling. Drink this superb value over the next 1-2 years."

Wonderful example of dry Sauvignon Blanc almost like a Brut without the bubbly. Very good.

Style: Fruity & Smooth
Not being a big fan of white wine in general, but especially sauvignon blanc, I was pleasantly surprised by this bottle. Smooth, crisp, not too tart, with hints of citrus. Not too herbally or grassy either. Would definately buy again.

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....
