The Tara range is a fascinating project started in 2008. Pioneered by the daring team at Viña Ventisquero, these revolutionaries ventured into the Huasco Valley and planted vines within this, literally and metaphorically, deserted environment. Although it is warm and extremely dry (just 45mm of rainfall each year), the sea fog known as the Camanchaca blankets and the strong winds in the valley provide relief from the scorching sun, moisture from the air and ample temperature regulation. As a result, grape varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are able to thrive here.

 

The Pinot Noir, aged in barrel for 24 months, is equally stunning. Receiving its own 94 points (WA), Gutiérrez says it displays a sharp varietal definition: "very textured and velvety, with ultra-elegant tannins" and "aromatic and insinuating". Regrettably, this exquisite but low yielding terroir produces just 3,400 bottles - fewer than 600 cases for the world!
