Alcyone Tannat Vinedo de Los Vientos Dessert Wine, Canelones, Uruguay, Non Vintage 50cl
100% Tannat made by combining two different Italian winemaking techniques, Barolo Chinato (where wine is infused with herbs) and Marsala (fortified with grape spirit).
'Alcyone' was a Greek demi goddess. The wine has a honey like texture, with aromas of winter flowers, Madagascan vanilla bean, white cacao souffle and dark cherries. It's savoury with a long finish.
A great match for chocolate and chocolate desserts.
Vinedo de Los Vientos ‘Vineyard of the winds’ is located where the River Plate, the widest river in the world, meets the Atlantic Ocean. This region provides clean cool ocean breezes and an ideal climate for the maturation of wine grapes. With only 16 hectares, they practice sustainable agriculture with no insecticides and only a very low grade fungicide to control downy mildew. The winemaker, Pablo Fallabrino, a laid back good natured surfer, is the perfect catalyst to create a world class winery. His approach is not to over think the winemaking process; instead, he runs with his instincts, takes chances and makes extraordinary wines with his own personal signature.
