Tannat

A tannin-rich grape variety with exceptional aging potential. The undisputed warhorse of Uruguayan viticulture. Though it is native to the southwest of France, it would likely only be an obscure blending wine without Uruguay's influence. According to scientific studies, Tannat has more health benefits than any other varietal. It also ages spectacularly: often "tarry" and harsh when young, they become smooth and accessible with age. Its flavour profile encompasses elements ranging from plum and wild berry aromas to vegetal and floral notes. A fantastic accompaniment to red meat.
