Tannat 2018: USA Wine Competition Silver Medal
Ripe blueberry & black plum with mocha notes.
Our brand new NC Tannat is going to be your new favorite! This unique red is a high acid stunner, which is a testament to the viticulture and winemaking that went into it. Tannat is traditionally one of the most tannic and astringent grapes in the world, but our Carolina Tannat is elegant and refined with high acidity to perfectly balance and tame the wild tannins of the grape. Ripe blueberry, black plum, hints of spice from 14 months in barrel, and perfect balance. Reminiscent of CA Pinot Noir in its lightness and acidity, you will fall in love with our Tannat.
Our 2018 vintage Tannat can be enjoyed today or cellared for another 12-15 months to ripen the fruit notes and mellow the acidity. Light body with bold tannin & acid makes this the perfect all-season AND food wine!
Pairs beautifully with vegetarian fare, mediterranean food, and light berry desserts.
