Tabali 'Talinay' Syrah, Limari Valley, Chile

Syrah Elevated: Tabalí's Talinay Masterpiece

History and Pedigree: Viña Tabalí, a jewel on the fringes of Chile's Atacama Desert in the Limarí Valley, epitomizes the harmonious blend of tradition and ambition. Founded in 2002 by the visionary Guillermo Lukšic Craig, Tabalí has swiftly ascended to the zenith of Chilean winemaking, underpinned by a rich tapestry of familial legacy and pioneering spirit. The Lukšic lineage, synonymous with success in various enterprises, instilled in Tabalí a foundational ethos of excellence and innovation. Following Guillermo's passing in 2013, his son Nicolás has carried the torch, propelling the winery to new heights alongside Chief Winemaker Felipe Müller, whose accolades and global viticultural explorations have solidified Tabalí's standing in the wine world.

Production Highlights: The 'Talinay' Syrah represents the quintessence of Tabalí's quest for perfection, born from the coastal Talinay vineyard where limestone-rich soils and proximity to the sea create an idyllic microclimate for Syrah vines. Planted in 2006, these vines yield a wine of unparalleled elegance and complexity. The winery's gravity-fed processing and exclusive use of French oak from revered forests underscore a commitment to gentle, nature-aligned winemaking practices, ensuring each bottle encapsulates the purest expression of its terroir.
