“This exclusive blend achieves the perfect balance between our elegant Pinot Noir and our expressive Tannat. We invite you to discover in this great wine one of the hidden secrets of our country.”
Juan Andrés Marichal – Winemaker
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.

“This wine’s citrus peel and wet clay aromas include cherry and plum notes. An unusual blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Tannat, it’s lean and gritty, with
raw acidity. Its spiced plum, red currant and tomato sauce flavors finish choppy, with dry, leafy notes.”

“Dark concentrated ruby color, fresh ripe fruit flavor
Very full bodied wine with lots of ripe fresh fruit, chewy tannins. Good with meat.”

“Those two rather tannic varieties work together in a wine tha has enough
aciddity to handle a salami sandwich. The fruit is red, and the texture is tense, with outstanding grip and rather light body that is also lean and energetic.”
