    Winemaker Notes

    Garnet red color with petrol highlights. Very expressive in the nose with black fruits, mulberries, cassis, raisins, over an elegant smoky background. Velvety but marked tannins. Balanced and persistent final bouquet.

    Grapes are sourced from three maritime influenced sites - Melilla, a fairly cool climate site that surrounds the winery; Las Violetas, a warmer, clay driven site about 15 miles north of the winery; and Pan de Azucar, one of the country’s premier coastal vineyards and a site that sits below the world renowned rock formation of the same name, located about an hour east of Montevideo. Vineyard rows in Melilla are uniquely topped with two feet of pink granite from a local quarry to collect and radiate additional heat for their grapes.

    Bouza, South America

    We have always believed that working on smaller scales produces better outcomes and we take great care in applying this to every stage of the winemaking process, from the vineyard to the glass of wine. This in turn is how we reflect our personality in our wines.

    The grapes produced are Albarino and Chardonnay as white varieties and Merlot, Tempranillo and Tannat as red varieties, being this last one the variety that identifies the wines of Uruguay. Bouza's Tannat wines have given us great satisfactions lately with different awards at international level.

    Tannat

    View all products

    A brooding, rustic and dark red originating from the Madiran region in Southwest, France, Tannat is named for its naturally high level of tannins.

    The vines ended up in the hands of Basque settlers who are responsible for bringing the variety to Uruguay in the early 19th century—similar to Malbec’s journey to Argentina, which actually happened after Tannat’s trans-Atlantic journey, and by a Frenchman. Today the grape has become much more important in Uruguay, where it thrives in its warmer South American climate, making a wine still deep in color and bold in tannins but with riper, more forward fruit complemented by sweet autumn spice and roasting coffee aromas. Producers have more freedom here to blend the firm Tannat with softer varieties like Pinot noir or Merlot.

    From its home in Madiran, Tannat produces bold, inky and granular wines, concentrated in black and blue fruit with aromas of wet earth, dried herbs and graphite. They’re often composed of 100% Tannat but the law allows no less than 60%; the remainder of the blend can include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and an indigenous grape called Fer.

    Try Tannat with a big juicy steak, a rich Pasta Bolognese or any strong cheese.
