Argentina: Red

Munay Tannat 2018, Salta

Perhaps not the first place you would expect to find the tannat variety; and doing well too-very well! Tannat certainly seems to have found a new home within the high altitude vineyards of the Salta region of northern Argentina.

Tannat is renowned for its prowess in the wine word; due to its thick skins and higher seed count (usually 5 compared to 3-4). As a result, it has one of the highest polyphenol and antioxidant counts of any variety in the world. With this, comes a naturally big tannic structure. Superb quality of fruit and expert vinification has produced balance, freshness along with depth of flavour. Such a satisfying red!

Snap it up quick before word gets out. An Argentine tannat did just win Best in Show in the 2020 Decanter Wine Awards after all!
