Amato Vino Carignano Tannat 2016

Regular price $30.00
An eclectic blend of the Spanish Carignano and south-western French favourite Tannat provides an exotic and heady wine of aromatic spice. Both varieties from the cooler Karridale sub-region and surrounded by tall stands of eucalypt. Both portions hand-picked and wild-fermented in open bins before basket-pressing to aged oak barriques and hogsheads for eight months. Blended and bottled unfiltered, unfined.

An instant hit of spearmint-leaf to the nose, followed by red cherry scents, mocha and the abundant eastern spices – fragrant white pepper leaf, peppermint, cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fruits of plum and raisined grapes, some anise/liqorice, and the ever present choc-mint. Even a hint of red jelly babies! The palate shows medium weight, silky tannin and creamy texture; plum and dark cherry fruits, vanilla pod, cardamom and choc-cherry ripe. A touch of acid at the back holds it all together.

Excellent with lamb, or charry/BBQ meats, charcuterie, pizza.
