Tabali is a family winery, founded by Guillermo Luksic and today led by his son Nicolás. They produce wines of terroir that express their place of origin with purity and precision. Tabalí was one of the first wineries to settle in the Limarí Valley. It´s one of the most promising valleys of the country and it is located in the North of Chile. The proximity to the Atacama Desert and to the Pacific Ocean, as well as the presence of limestone soils, brings an exceptional and unique terroir; ideal for the production of high-quality wines.
The Pinot Noir comes from both the Talinay vineyard and the Espinal vineyard. The Talinay vineyard is located in the Limarí Valley on the indomitable cool coast of northern Chile, It is next to the Fray Jorge National Park, in an area that UNESCO has declared a World Biosphere Reserve. The Espinal vineyard is also located in the coastal part of the valley and is an ancient alluvial terrace.
Deep, shiny, ruby red colour. The nose displays complex, fresh aromas with outstanding fruity intensity, full of cherries, strawberries and spices, all perfectly integrated with the French oak. In the mouth, this wine is fresh, delicate and well-balanced with good acidity. A seductive wine with an elegant and pronounced finish.
Every single task in the vineyard, from pruning to harvesting, is carefully supervised by our viticultural and winemaking team in order to produce the best possible quality. The grapes were hand-harvested. The harvest began in the last week of February, when this variety had reached the optimum phenolic ripeness. The clusters were later very carefully selected, then destemmed and selected one last time. Then they were subject to a cold soak for 8 days at 8°C, before continuing on to the alcoholic fermentation in small stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Next came a second maceration, lasting 3 days. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
