Lively and brilliant gold yellow.Citrus and white fruits are melted at the nose, dried and tropical fruits touches, subtle sweet spices and slightly smoky. Fine mineral and floral hints.A lot of volume and texture well balance by a precise acidity and minerality.Powerful but graceful at once, this harmony goes on trough the long finish.
Vina Tamaya is located in the Limari Valley, just 400 kms north of Santiago, Chile and a mere 20 kms distantance from the Pacific Ocean. Limar Valley lies adjacent to the most arid desert in the world, The Atacama, but benefits from the cool sea breeze. They have succeeded in achieving a perfect equilibrium between the combination of its varietal grapes and the character of its land. Planting of the vines started in 1997, and the construction of the winery (with a capacity of 1,470,000 litres) began in 2001. The winemaker is Jos Pablo Martin, one of the most exciting young winemakers in Chile, who has worked with top Chilean and French producers. He has recently been joined by Felipe Solminihac, who will act as the consultant winemaker, bringing with him many years of winemaking skill and experience from around the world. The Reserva wines are perfectly balanced with an additional complexity, enhanced by careful ageing in French Oak casks. They are full bodied and well-structured with a long finish. Finally, the Winemakers Selection wines are made using only the finest grapes from the estate. We have selected four wines from their range which we think are at the cutting edge of modern Chilean wine and we recommend these wine to you.
