Pedregal TANNAT 2015

Our bestseller!  The colour of this 100% Tannat is superb, intensely dark bold red for which Tannat is known for. This wine provides lovely dark fruit aromas, paired with cherry, figs and chocolate. This is a mouthfilling Tannat with savoury dark red fruits and earthy notes. Pedregal which literally means stone desert, owes its name to the soils in which the grapevines grow in. The winery is ideally situated, on well drained rocky soils with pink granite veins running through them.

Km.0 Reserva MALBEC 2016

The French Malbec grape may have found a new home in Argentina, but it is also produced in Uruguay in small quantities. Malbec from Uruguay is medium bodied, powerful and spicy. Intensity and balance characterize this modern Malbec and make it a true experience: This wine is characterized by warm aromas of plums, ripe black cherries, peppery notes, nuances of vanilla and chocolate in the background. The particular climate and the soils of the winery, which is located directly at the zero point of the Río de la Plata, let the Malbec grape ripen excellently and ensure a balanced red wine with a pleasant acidity.

Ombú Classico TANNAT 2015

Finally we have a Tannat, that has not aged in oak! The Ombú Tannat Classico is the only pure Tannat wine in our range, that has aged in concrete wine tanks.  Aging this wine in concrete tanks enhances the preserved fruity characteristics and also softens the well known tannins, for which Tannat is well known. This Tannat shimmers with dark berry red and black-purple reflections in the glass. A delicate scent of violets, plums, spices and rosemary with subtle earthy aromas. The tannins are shaped, but round and harmonious.

Classic Blend TANNAT MERLOT CABERNET FRANC 2013

With a lively red colour. It has an elegant aroma of red fruits (strawberries and raspberries) and a touch of vanilla. In the mouth it feels soft and fresh, with mature tanning that provides roundness and equilibrium. Delicate ending, yet persistent. In the great 2013 vintage lies a hidden gem: A powerful yet elegant cuvée from the eastern coast of Uruguay. The nose is pleasant with ripe, dark jam aromas, a touch of prunes and a little nougat with a hint of tobacco. The Classic Blend is a wine of medium complexity, with fine bramble fruit, present tannins and a slightly chocolaty touch in the finish.

BELLA DONNA MARSELAN 2017

Did you know that the first varietal Marselan was bred in the 1960s? This is not only a new wine in our range, but the crossing of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache is also relatively new to the wine world. Violet blue in the glass with aromas of raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, plums and pepper. The fruitiness and aromas of the Grenache and tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon makes this a wine of great volume, and structure,  which is dense and extremely juicy with a slight sweetness.

Km.0 Gran Reserva TANNAT 2013

After 18 months in American oak, the edgy tannins are velvety to rounded with an excellent finish. The Km.0 Gran Reserva Tannat Roble presents itself with dark ruby garnet and purple reflections. Complex and profound: A hint of nougat and vanilla-like spicy oak. This Tannat has a medium complexity with hints of red berries and plum. Present tannins and fine spicy nuances. It is on the coast of Carmelo, where the Uruguay and Paraná rivers in eastern Uruguay meet and where the "Km.0" starts,  the kilometer zero of  the Rio de la Plata. It is under this special climatic influence, where the best grapes ripen on limestone soils.

Km.0 Gran Reserva PINOT NOIR 2015

Attention to all Pinot Noir lovers: This rare and delicate Km.0 Gran Reserva Pinot Noir from western Uruguay convinces with seducing aromas of ripe red berries, fennel and dill. Cherries, raspberries, vanilla and spices roll across the palate of this fine Pinot Noir, a grape that only a handful of wineries can master in Uruguay. Very well structured with an excellent balance between fresh acidity and soft tannins. An exotic Pinot Noir that still has potential and which we highly recommend.

Ombú Reserve Petit Verdot 2016

Only a handful of uruguayan winemakers have recognized the potential of Petit Verdot  and the Ombú Reserve Petit Verdot is one of the few Petit Verdots from Uruguay.

In the bouquet, this Petit Verdot shows aromas of black cherries, blueberries, plums and violets, with herbaceous  mineral notes. The palate is juicy, fruity with an elegant hint of spices and soft, but present tannins. A full-bodied Petit Verdot with wonderful fruity aromas and pleasant acidity.
