2016 Amato Vino Carignano Tannat

$30.00

An eclectic blend of the Spanish Carignano and south-western French favourite Tannat provides an exotic and heady wine of aromatic spice.

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.

Description
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, nutmeg etc.. 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.

  1. Avatar for Brad

    An unusual combo of grape varieties from Margaret River. Bright, fresh young wine style here. It’s a blend rather than a co-ferment here too. From the Three Hills Estate vineyard. I very much like that Amato Vino (Brad Wehr) labels his ingredients on his bottles too – I think that should be a thing on all wine, but hey, that’s unlikely to get traction.

    Simple wine, flooded with crispy, crunchy, vibrant fruit character and a liberal dusting of savoury spice. Tannins are chompy but light on, acidity brisk and refreshing. It’s all red and black berry fruitiness packed into a leaner, light weight wine style.
