Tannat 2016

Tannat 2016

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 2016 vintage showcases the characteristics our Tannat is known for: age-worthiness, mouth filling and full-bodied character with a powerful yet approachable tannin structure and uncommon concentration of flavour. The 2016 Tannat is a full-bodied wine with a deep ruby colour, and notes of ripe blueberry, figs, and vanilla bean on the nose. The palate follows through and shows remarkably rich tannin structure, while showcasing flavours of blackberry, chocolate, and coffee. It has a rich mouthfeel, with a velvety tannin structure and a jaw-dropping finish that leaves you wanting more. Tannat is a wine that needs to be cellared in order for its most intriguing and captivating age characteristics to become apparent. This vintage was bottled in March of 2018 and is just now (mid - 2020) being released. Although this wine drinks well now, we expect it will continue to benefit from at least ten years of bottle aging.
