Description: While the origins of this variety lie in the Basque country, Tannat is best known for its role in the strapping, 'hairs-on-your-chest' kinda reds of Madiran in France's southwest. As you would expect from the variety, this is an amply flavoured number and yet surprisingly light on its feet. With bright fruit and dark cherry/iodine/ink notes, racy acidity and firm, spicy tannins, it is a compact and mid-weighted red that is both delicious and distinctive!
