About This Wine
In the foothills of the Andes Mountains, there is a special place for growing winegrapes.
Located 290 miles north of Chile’s capital city of Santiago, the Limari Valley has been a winemaking hub since the 1500s. But only in recent years has the valley blossomed as a quality capital of Chilean wine, thanks to an infusion of investment and technology.
Each morning, the Pacific Ocean’s cooling Camanchaca fog creeps into the valley from the west. As the sun rises over the Andes, the fog retreats, and the vines are bathed in pure sunlight. Drip irrigation enables them to flourish as their roots dig deep into the mineral-rich soil — resulting in fresh wines with a distinct mineral edge.
This is the home of Tamaya, which crafts a world-class red blend from Limari Valley-grown Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The 2013 vintage is a full-bodied, rich wine reflective of a unique growing region.
A midseason ripener, it can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to claret blends.
