Artesana - Uruguay
Artesana is a small production, ultra-premium estate winery in the acclaimed Canelones region of Uruguay specializing in Tannat, Tannat blends and Zinfandel, the only Zinfandel produced in Uruguay. Made with the highest quality estate-grown fruit, Artesana’s iconic wines showcase Uruguay’s distinctive terroir and its signature varietal Tannat.
Full bodied and redolent with rich cassis and blackberry fruit suffused with layers of licorice, clove, cedar and allspice harmonizing in a long and well rounded finish. Pairs beautifully with pasta and meat dishes including beef, lamb and pork.
Tannat Merlot Zinfandel
For the big red wine lover, Artesana presents a delicious and affordable red blend wine, hand-crafted in Uruguay, South America, made from the rare Tannat grape, along with velvety Merlot and Juicy Zinfandel. This wine will be a grill and steak standard, with a lot of power and finesse for the price.
A light rose petal color leads to a nose reminiscent of fresh red berries, currants and raspberry notes. The palate showcases beautiful fruit definition and intensity, with the requisite acidity at its spine, giving a crisp and clean edge to the delicious red currant flavors. This wine possesses engaging fruit with noted depth leading to a lovely lingering, dry finish.
