About the Wine
The Vetas Blancas (White Veins) Sauvignon Blanc is grown in the estates Talinay Vinyard on the western side of the Limari Valley. This growing site is less than 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, providing a cool crisp growing environment, perfect for producing high-quality white wines. The wine is raised entirely in stainless steel tanks, giving a laser-focused profile that is extremely bright and refreshing. This is the perfect sauvignon blanc for a hot summer day.
Felipe Müller was born and raised in Santiago, Chile’s capital. Today, at the age of 41, he is considered one of the country´s most influential and important winemakers. In 2006 he joined Tabalí as Chief Winemaker. According to Felipe Müller “Tabalí, though relatively young, has enormous potential, as shown by its outstanding Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Syrah wines”. The winery’s goal is to make the finest wines of the Limari Valley and ultimately become a reference at a national level, by exploring new terroir, new plantations and new selections of clones.
Felipe Müller was named ‘Best Winemaker of the Year’ in the sixteenth version of “Guía de Vinos de Chile 2010”, Chile’s oldest and most prestigious wine industry publication. This distinction was an important recognition for the enthusiasm, passion and dedication he puts in crafting wines.
Tasting Notes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Pale yellow with greenish hues. The nose displays great character, complexity, elegance and a very intense, singular minerality, with some notes of citrus fruit, white flowers and a hint of greenness. This is a full-bodied wine with minerality and high acidity, together with a salty aftertaste thanks to the chalky soil. Very long on the palate, with a fresh and elegant finish.
For Vetas Blancas, the winemaker Felipe Müller selects hillside barracks that face south, a cold orientation in the southern hemisphere. Here the influence of lime is not only felt in the saline flavors, which are shown alongside the citrus and herbal notes. It can also be seen especially in the structure of this wine: firm, with punchy textures that stick to the palate, all accompanied by a saline, mineral acidity. The finish smells of herbs and limes, in a white of great complexity and strength.~ 94 Descorchados
