Tannat has two typical defining characteristics: firm tannins and bright acidity, and this wine has both of those things and then some. This is the second harvest of the Hye Estate fruit. This vintage differs from the previous due to using neutral oak, which produces a more earthy, terroir driven wine. We recommend cellaring at least 1 year, drink up to 2026.

 

Black and inky with a redish purple at rim, a rich velvety nose of prune, sage and thyme. A massive presence on the palate, showing youthfulness of seemingly endless tannins that will integrate and improve with a long decanting or time in the cellar. A patient appreciator will reap the benefits of this wine, bringing out the underlying savory notes of grilled red meat and mushroom bouillon.
