A Toast to the Mountains and Sea: The 2018 Tabalí 'Vetas Blancas' Malbec - Cabernet Franc Blend

History and Pedigree

Viña Tabalí, a beacon of innovation in Limarí Valley, Chile, was founded by Guillermo Luksic, with his son Nicolás now at the helm, continuing a legacy of terroir-focused wines. The winery, known for pioneering efforts and exceptional quality, was established in 2002. It champions the singularity of its vineyards, from coastal to mountainous sites, to produce wines that embody their origin, a vision passionately pursued by both generations.

Production Highlights

The 'Vetas Blancas' blend, comprising 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc, is meticulously crafted from the El Espinal vineyard. Each variety is harvested, vinified, and aged separately to ensure optimal fruit expression, freshness, and natural acidity. Using native yeasts, gentle pump-overs, and post-fermentative maceration, followed by 14 months in used French oak barrels, underscores Tabalí's commitment to quality and innovation.

Product Details

Located at 250 meters above sea level, within 24 kilometers of the Pacific, the vineyard boasts alluvial soils with limestone veins, ideal for high-end winemaking. This 2018 blend showcases an alcohol content of 14.7%, with a harmonious balance of acidity and residual sugar, reflecting the unique terroir of the Limarí Valley.

Sensory Perception

The wine presents an intense red color with violet hues. Aromatically, it melds blueberries and cherries with floral notes from the Malbec and fresh spices from the Cabernet Franc, creating a complex and attractive bouquet. It offers a structured, fresh, and powerful expression on the palate, balanced by smooth, fruit-packed nuances and a subtle oak influence.

Pairings and Occasions

This blend celebrates its extraordinary terroir, perfect for moments that call for a wine of complexity and elegance. It pairs splendidly with hearty meat dishes, aged cheeses, and rich pasta, making it an ideal choice for special dinners or a sophisticated gift for discerning wine lovers.
