Licor de Tannat is the first of its kind to be produced in Uruguay and is madefrom the ripest and most concentrated Tannat grapes using the same traditional methods as the famous vintage ports. The fermentation is stopped with the addition of high quality Tannat alcohol thereby retaining some of the natural sugars in the grape juice and achieving 18-20 degrees of alcohol.
The result is a rich wine that is naturally sweet and has been matured for one year in oak barrels.
This Port style wine is intensely dark in colour and has aromas of ripe figs, mint and chocolate. On the pallet it has concentrated and balanced fruits and shows its natural sweetness whilst retaining its tannic character. Ideal to accompany desserts, particularly chocolate, but also cheese or as a digestif.
