"Spicy dark wild berries. Very intense but not over-sweet on the nose. Just slightly floral. Lightly and nicely dusty. Super-dry finesse and paper-fine but compact tannins. Dark and savoury but fluid. Lovely texture. Fresh and long and very elegant. Beautiful balance. More linear when you come back to it after the other single-vineyard wines tasted alongside." (JH)

Hand harvested with careful double selection of bunches and individual berries. Cold pre fermentation maceration at low temperatures over 4 days. Alcoholic fermentation without the use of sulphites at 26 - 28 degrees. Small addition of sulphites after malolactic fermentation. Aged in combination of both first and second use French oak barrels.

The Deicas family has dedicated the past 15 years to exploring new vineyard sites in Uruguay, leading to the development of new growing areas for tannat, the country's emblematic varietal. The family vineyards are in close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, where the maritime influence regulates ripening, allowing tannat to fully develop its aromas and phenolics, while retaining freshness. Santiago Deicas, winemaker and 3rd generation in the family winery, crafts dry-farmed tannats that are bold and fresh, with a sophisticated tannin structure. These single vineyard wines are full expressions of the specific sites, each reflecting their unique soils and microclimates.
