Domaine Engel Vins Dalsace Pinot Noir Tradition Rosé 2008
The Tortoise Hill range derives its name from one of Glen Carlou’s most distinctive landmarks: a rocky hill in the shape of a giant tortoise. Created to add quality and enjoyment to contemporary living, the two vibrantly fruity wines are backed by the Glen Carlou promise of consistent quality. This wine is a rich strawberry pink with a hint of cranberry red. On the nose there's delicate rose petal aromas, ripe raspberry and cherry - very clean and fresh. On the palate soft acidity balances the clean dark fruit and ripe watermelon flavours. The finish is soft and dry with lingering dark berry fruits. A lovely light aperitif wine, enjoyed by itself or with a summer salad.

This wine showed rich red fruits, yeasty baking bread and pepper on the nose. Juicy raspberry but not much else on the palate and a little dry on the finish. In comparison to the previous vintage, this wine falls short on both body and depth. Very drinkable and good for the price but not a repeat purchase for me.
Syrupy legs, apple, medium body and texture. Somewhat grassy like NZ Sauv Blanc and somewhat whole mouth feel like Calif Chard.

Red-ruby. Roasted berries, plum, chocolate and spicecake on the nose. Fat, sweet and smooth, with somewhat cabernet-like flavors of roasted red berries and spicecake. A fruit-driven, easygoing, essentially soft wine with a bit more class than the basic Protocolo red; the vineyards here are at higher altitude and the oak barrels are a bit younger.
Fresh, dry, and approachable, this rosé is made by a talented mother-daughter team. You'll love their style; travel to the south of France and you'll find the locals drinking rosés just like this one.
The 2008 Chardonnay Reserva Especial shows off the potential for Chardonnay in Limari. It delivers Cote de Beaune like aromatics of mineral, toast, white fruits, and hazel nut. Elegant, intense, with lively natural acidity, this lengthy effort may we... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from in Chile. 2008 Tabali Chardonnay Reserve Especial 750ml
This light red mingles tart cherry and vanilla flavors with firm, slightly drying tannins. Fresh and bitter, it needs food to soften it. Drink now.
The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva is a great value. It exhibits a fragrant bouquet of mineral, passion fruit, and citrus. This leads to a mouth-watering, vibrant, lengthy Sauvignon that way over-delivers for its humble price. Tabali is producing high quality wines from the newly developing cool-climate region of Limari.
