Collection: Tannat Wine

Tannat wines are rich and lively. Originally from Madiran, in southwest France, the grape however is now grown in Australia, Brazil, Italy, Peru, the United States, and Argentina. The grapes are influenced by a region's climate, soils, and altitude, among other things, which give the wine its distinct taste. The two main wine regions in Argentina are Cuyo and the Northern region (the Calchaquí Valleys) are where most tantanat is cultivated and vinified. Usually Tannat should be aged in Oak as the wine can often lend it self to being quite astringent. Keeping the wine in Oak for at least 6 months balances the palate and allows you to discover the full depth this wine has to offer.
