Marichal Tannat

Marichal Tannat

The Tannat grape has been transformed by the Uruguayan environment to become the country’s prominent variety. Marichal winemaking methods produce a Tannat without any wood or oak treatment resulting in a Tannat that is uniquely approachable with softer, velvety tannins and aromas of blackberries and dark fruit. The wine is a direct expression of its terroir and the climate where it thrives.

Bodega Marichal is headed by winemakers Juan Andrés and Alejandro Marichal. They are a family-owned, Uruguayan winery originally established in 1938 and now they are into their third and fourth generation of family winemaking. The vineyards are located at an ideal latitude in the department, or province, of Canelones (15 miles north of Uruguay’s capitol, Montevideo) where the warm weather, cool Atlantic breezes and deep clay soil allow grape varieties like Tannat to thrive and achieve unique character.
