About

Tannat has a formidable reputation as one of the most heartily tannic varieties in the world. The trick for the winery is always to keep the drinkability along with the power.

This version from Just Red Wines manages to walk that tightrope very well. A combination of robust fruit and gravelly tannin with just enough brightness to keep things clipping along.

A tasty version of this often misunderstood French variety. Mike Bennie awarded the 2015 vintage an imprssive 93 points as well as it winning the Trophy for Champion Alternative Variety Red Wine at the 2016 Queensland Wine Awards.

Red-blooded fans of powerful reds will find this intriguing and immensely satisfying.

What It Tastes Like

“Formidable inky black colour. Gregorian chants, sound them! Tar, coal, black berries, dates, dark chocolate and coffee grounds. Deep bouquet. Palate is thick set but surprisingly fresh feeling, sure, it’s concentrated plum jam, sour cherry fruity, lashed with ribs of sandy tannins, blocky in its swathe across the palate, but there’s great lift of acidity to keep things fresh and squeaky to close. Really well done.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
