Diego Spinoglio




Uruguay is an overlooked wine country, although the country geographically has the same basis for wine production as the more well-known South American wine countries, Chile and Argentina.
In recent years, Uruguay has refined and consolidated its wine production as a quality producer of wines with greater and greater international recognition.
This wine is made on Tannat, which gives dark colored wines. The grapes have very thick skins, which in addition to colors and flavors are rich in tannins and antioxidants. A distinctive French grape variety originating in the Pyrenees and fame from Cahors. Tannat has found its second home in Uruguay, where it is considered the national grape.


Uruguay er et overset vinland i dansk henseende, selvom landet geografisk har samme grundlag for vinproduktion, som de mere kendte sydamerikanske vinlande, Chile og Argentina. 

Uruguay har i de senere år forædlet og konsolideret sin vinproduktion, som en kvalitetsproducent af vine med større og større international anerkendelse. 

Denne vin er lavet på Tannat, som giver mørkt farvede vine. Druerne har meget tykke skaller, som foruden farve- og smagsstoffer er rige på tanniner og antioxidanter. En markant fransk druesort med oprindelse i Pyrinæerne og berømmelse fra Cahors. Tannat har fundet sit andet hjem i Uruguay, hvor den betragtes som nationaldruen.

General grape descriptions


Tannat is a red-wine grape whose origins lie in the Basque country, on the border between France and Spain. Here, in the shadow of the Pyrenees Mountains, the terrain is rough and rugged, so it is only fitting that Tannat should create wines which are equally deep, dark, dry and rustic.

Tannat is the most planted variety of Uruguay where it was studied to determine that it contains some of the highest polyphenols (antioxidants) of all red wines.
