Good Pinot Noir Without Breaking the Piggy-Bank

The cool evenings of the Limarí Valley in central Chile provide an excellent setting for growing Pinot Noir. tabaliTabalí takes advantage of this terroir to give us an elegant Pinot for the money. The nose is classic with strawberry, floral and light herbaceous tones. Tannin and acidity in check with the fruity, earthy and slightly jammy medium body, leading to the finish, which has a bit of cloves and is just a tad too alcoholic (mind that this quality of Pinot, coming from Burgundy would be $30-35). In its price range, Tabalí performs more than satisfactorily against popular Pinots from New Zealand, namely Mudhouse and Oyster Bay.
