“Dusty plum, vanilla, orange peel and spice aromas form the high point on this sharp-edged…
…Flavors of salty plum and pie cherry are tart and punchy, while this is snappy, tight and drawing on a saucy finish.”

Grape variety: 100% Tannat

Variety characteristics: 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.

Soil: Calcareous and permeable undulating fields.

Harvest-Date: Early March

Harvest: Manually collected in 18 kg boxes.

Fermentation: 17 days

Malolactic Fermentation: Yes.

Oak ageing: 12 months (30% of the wine without oak in order to keep the best expression of the variety).

Description: Intense garnet colour with ruby glints. It presents red and black fruit aromas in a mature state. Smooth texture with an interesting roundness of tannins, with hints of vanilla and tobacco.

Food Pairing: It is considered to be a very good match for red meat, pasta, and strong taste cheeses.

“In terms of varietal identity, this tannat has tremendous character. Sharp-focused and
honest, this Reserve Collection comes from old vineyards and was aged for a year
in barrels, 20% new.”

A bright nose with pretty, lifted notes of raspberries and red cherries. Vibrant on the palate with forthright acidity and crunchy berries. A tad tart on the finish. Drink now.

Harvest: 2010

“Attractive ruby color, nose of rich ripe red fruit such as red currants, and a fruit flavor on
the palate of cranberries and loganberries. Soft tannins and racy acidity. It is made with
5 days cold maceration (no dissolution of tannins in must) get the color but not too much
tannins. Then separate skins to get the fruit. This creates a less structured, less tannic
wine made without barrels that can be enjoyed within six months.”

Harvest: 2009

“Deep ruby color, juicy fruit on the nose, and on the palate a nicely structured wine with elegance and refinement from the oak maturation. Some spice. Well behaved.
Can drink alone or pair with food.”
