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

About the Wine
The Mâconnais, Burgundy's southernmost region, is the gateway to the enchanting land of the world's finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Just last year one of the Mâconnais most prestigious sub-regions, Pouilly-Fuisse, had 22 individual vineyards receive official recognition as 1er cru or 'first-class' terroirs. But over the years, the vineyards have largely remained the same as this region continues to get overlooked for Bugundy's more premier appellations. In 2000, a wine aficionado, Sophie Cinier, with almost no winemaking experience took over her Grandmother's Mâconnais vineyards. Her grandparents had been involved in wine production since their vines were first planted in 1941. Since she took over, Sophie has become a White Burgundy wizard crafting some of the most impressive whites from this unheralded southern part of Burgundy.
There is a stunning range of different styles from her minuscule Domaine. Sophie maintains 9 1/2 acres of vineyards, a small amount even by Burgundy standards. Unlike large parts of the Mâconnais where machine harvesting is the norm, Sophie’s vineyards are entirely hand-harvested. Sophie is currently transitioning the vineyards to be fully organic. In a world where quality white burgundy seems so out of reach, Sophie Cinier, with her cape blowing in the wind, brings hope that you can find quality white burgundy at an affordable price.
Cinier's wines are unoaked, barrel-fermented, with little to no oak aging. There are no lees stirring, and with a touch of the fashionable reductive aromas so much in vogue. Her wines are rich with great purity and tension. Sophie creates one of the finest expressions of Chardonnay from the Mâconnais, ripe, full-flavored wines with exciting and bracing acidity.
Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. Aromas of white flowers, lemon curd, fresh nuts, crushed stones. Plush, fruity, refined. Perfect alongside grilled chicken, soft-rind French cheeses, and sushi.
