Tannat 2015

Tannat 2015

The Tannat grape is a robust and intense grape variety that originated in the Madiran region of France and has now become known as the flagship grape of Uruguay. Moon Curser was the first in British Columbia to plant Tannat in 2005, and remains, to this day, its premier champion in Canada. Intriguing, age-worthy and unlike any other Okanagan wine, this wine will reward patience in cellaring as fantastic flavours of ink, graphite and earth develop in bottle.

The 2015 Tannat is a full-bodied wine with a deep ruby colour, showing notes of blueberry compote, tobacco leaf and rosemary on the nose. The palate follows through and shows remarkably rich tannin structure, while showcasing flavours of vanilla, raspberry jam and cedar. It has a rich mouthfeel, with velvety tannin structure and powerful long finish.

 

Tannat benefits from extended bottle aging. This wine was bottled in March of 2017 and is just now (mid - 2019) being released. Although approachable now, we expect the ’15 Tannat will continue to benefit from aging for at least ten more years and reward patience with an extraordinary tasting experience as the fantastic notes of black ink, graphite and earth develop in bottle.
