This Overground Tannat is from Uruguay, which is starting to make its name in the world of wine as the unofficial home of Tannat.
On the nose, you get smoke and fresh plum aromas to lure you in. On the palate, you get lashings of black fruit, spice and some smokey notes. This wine spent some time in used oak barrels so has a little oak influence but mainly this has just softened the tannins. As a result, you get a lovely full bodied wine that is smooth and well balanced.
In our opinion, this is a really special wine and we love the label artwork, taken from his Grandmother’s painting.
