Malbec's Sensational Value: 2017 Tabali Malbec Cabernet Franc Vetas Blancas
Let me ask you a question, what’s your definition of a perfect evening right after a long and hard workday? Let me give you mine: Resting on my cozy couch in comfy pj’s watching my favorite TV show with a slice of pepperoni pizza on one hand and today’s wine offer on the other.
Whoever said that amazing wine has to cost a fortune, clearly hasn’t tasted today’s offer: 2017 Tabali Malbec Cabernet Franc Vetas Blancas; this wine brought the stereotypical “daily wine” definition to a whole new level.
Robert Parker described it as the perfect “combination of power and elegance” and James Suckling did not only call it “very drinkable” but also defined it as “attractive”, both wrapping up their reviews with a notable score of 92 points.
The jaw-dropping price and luscious flavors are far from being the sole attributes of this stunning offer; this wine comes from a distinguished terroir and is crafted by distinguished hands. The vineyard is located in the oldest alluvial terrace in the coastal sector of the Limarí Valley, a region that is known for being one of the most promising Valleys in all of Chile.
Felipe Müller is the mastermind behind Tabali's wines, he is considered one of the country’s most influential and important winemakers, he has winemaking experience in top-tier Bordeaux Châteaux Canon La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte.
“It's very impressive and really integrated, with the two grapes complementing each other and coming through as harmonious and with very good freshness, combining power and elegance. It's floral and spicy, with fine tannins and a dry, serious finish. It seems to transcend the vintage and the price point. Great value.” ~ 92 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.
