2021 Tabali Talinay Sauvignon Blanc

2021 Tabali Talinay Sauvignon Blanc

Chile isn’t always the first place you think of when looking for world class Sauvignon Blanc, but it will be higher on our list after tasting this one.

Wow, this is a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc that caught us by surprise. The wine hails from the Limari Valley in Chile, located about 300 miles north of Santiago.

Costco’s price was $21.99, and online it looks like it sells in around that same range, maybe a little higher.

The Costco placard also shows off the 94 points the wine received from Vinous, and we found a 91 point review from Wine Enthusiast. So we were anxious to give it a taste.

In the glass the wine is a pale to medium yellow, lemony on the nose; in the mouth is a nice dose of citrus fruit, some pear and orange peel; nice minerality and acidity. Excellent finish, and just well done all around.

This is a memorable wine, a rather unique, flavor packed and interesting expression of the Chilean terroir. We’re big fans, and we’ll be placing on our Top Picks list. If you were ever bored with Sauvignon Blanc, give this one a shot. Rating: 91 points (a Costco Wine Top Pick)

I hope I can find it near me- I’m excited to try it. Will pay the price for a unique wine to pair with the right meal!

$22 seems a bit much for any Sauvignon Blanc, and especially for Costco members who tend to be bargain hunters. Let's see if it sells, and if - maybe - Costco discounts it to move it.

@Jim Heiner, $22 seems a bit much for a traditional Sauv Blanc, but not this one. I have had numerous bottles of this and it is sublime. Forget about NZ Sauv Blanc or even most French ones. This is perhaps the best I have ever had.

I really hope I can find it at my Costco but 90% of the reviewed wines here never show up :(

@Jim Heiner, agree overall, but I've had Talinay and it is very good. Just The right amount of SB zing for me , without going overboard.
