Grape varieties: 70% Pinot Noir 30% Tannat

Variety characteristics: Pinot Noir: The name is derived from the French words for “pine” and “black” alluding to the varietals’ tightly clustered dark purple pine cone shaped bunches of fruit. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. Tannat is a red wine grape, historically grown in South West France in the Madiran AOC and is now one of the most prominent grapes in Uruguay, where it is considered the “national grape”. The Tannat wines produced here are characterized by more elegant and softer tannins and blackberry fruit notes.
