Tannat originates from the Madiran region of south-west France ? the variety the so-called ?French Paradox? is based on. Tannat is known for its huge colour and tannin concentration ? in the Madiran region, this grape has the nickname of ?la folle noir? ? literally ?the crazy black grape?. It has a unique aroma and flavour profile ? vibrant fruit alongside ?earthy? notes.

The colour of the wine is a rich and vibrant hue of real intensity. The nose has a totally unique fruit profile of blackberry/blueberry notes and an underlying earthiness with hints of fountain-pen ink and a seam of French oak. At present, the wine displays a youthful vibrancy ? our experience is that with bottle age, the primary fruit gives way to earthiness and increased complexity.

There is a burst of black cherry fruit with a fresh lively mid-palate. The winemaking was directed towards softening the tannins to create mid-palate ?flesh? ? tannins support rather than dominate the palate here. Acid has been managed to enhance the wines vibrancy and fruit.

This huge wine will work well with a wide range of red meat dishes. We expect it to last a very long time ? 10+ years.

Approximately 30% new French oak, un-fined and unfiltered. Estate bottled, hand-labelled and individually hand-numbered
