The Deicas family has dedicated the past 15 years to pioneering vineyard sites in Uruguay, leading to the development of new growing areas for Tannat, the country’s emblematic varietal.
The cold nights of the San Jose region give inky blackness and brilliant clarity to the fruit.
It is here at the Mar de Piedras Vineyard lies on the boulder-shrewn slope of Mount Mahoma. The site’s low vigor, mineral rich, schist soils encourage deep root exploration. The wine is dense and filling on the palate, with a marked mineral personality.

'Completely saturated black colour like elderberry juice. Still wild dark fruit but richer and a little sweeter on the nose than the Valle de los Manantiales. More black plum. Much more powerful tannins from the water stress. Firm and dry and tight. Graphite and bloody iron, very mineral. Dark, savoury and elegant even with all this power. Fresh and refined in its power.
