Amauta Absoluto Tannat 2020, El Porvenir de Cafayate

Argentina / Salta

Andy's Tasting Notes

Richly fruited with hints of stewed strawberry, blackberry and fig.  There’s an intriguing hint of exotic spices, mocha and dark chocolate.  Big on style yet very well behaved!

Produced from a grape variety native to Madiran in South West France with a reputation for being tannic and rugged.  Yet in its new South American home it morphs into a much more drinker friendly variety!

 

Price per bottle £10.30

Producer Info

El Porvenir – “the future” has been the name of this estate has since it was founded in 1890. The winery and vineyards were restored by the Romero-Marcuzzi family in the 1990s.

This small, family-owned winery in Cafayate, specialises in Torrontes, Malbec, Tannat and red blends from 45-50 year old vineyards which are amongst the highest in the world at 1900masl and surrounded by 20ft, 200+ year old monster cacti.

Colour in the reds here is profound due to the exposure to prolonged mountain sunlight, with soft tannins thanks in part to the extreme diurnal temperature differences… some mornings the catcti are thick with frost but within a few hours temperatures soar to the mid/high 20s!
