    From our Taste of South America collection, we're delighted to offer this  wonderful expression of the Tannat  grape where no oak has been used to preserve the purity of the fruit. Traditionally Tannat is aged in oak to soften the tannins, but the secret to this wine was the slow fermenting of slightly overripe, high quality grapes in concrete tanks with a low fermenting temperature in order to extract colour, flavours and aromas but no rigid tannins.

    Rich and ripe flavours of cranberries and blackberries shine through, along with smoky, plumy flavours characteristic of the Tannat variety. The finish is long and generous.

  • Viña Progreso takes its name from Gabriel’s local village, Progreso, and the project is aptly named as these are indeed progressive wines, made by a guy whose enthusiasm, energy and open-mindedness shine through in the wines themselves. Progreso is in the department of Canelones, probably the country’s premier wine region in the south of the country. This is a gently undulating, low altitude environment where irrigation is rarely if ever necessary. These wines are a real eye-opener, offering a spectrum of styles from some quite unexpected grape varieties; the common theme being lovely concentration, open fruit, intelligent balance and impressive length.
