Altos de José Ignacio Tannat-Merlot, Uruguay

A blend of 80% Tannat and 20% Merlot, the grapes were grown in vineyards close to the South Atlantic Ocean around the town of Garzón. Here the cooling influence of on-shore breezes aids ripening and keeps the grapes healthy. Made without the use of oak, the wine shows ripe blackberry, redcurrant and blueberry fruit, the tannins are soft and the finish smooth.
