Pizzorno Tannat Reserve 2008

 

 
 Production Method
Tannat grapes 100%, handpicked from the oldest vines on the estate. The grapes were sorted to reject all but  the ripest and best, destemmed and crushed. After fermentation and a prolonged maceration, the wine was aged for 12 months in American oak.Tannat has its origins in Madiran, SW France. It has proved to be ideally suited to the soils and climate of
Uruguay and it has become the country's signature grape variety.

 
Tasting Notes:
 Dark ruby colour with hints of purple; with aroma of plums and wild berries.
Rich and full bodied with flavours of stone fruits, long lingering finish with great age potential.
Food Pairing
Rich casseroles, game, barbecues, mature cheese.
