Uruguayan Wine

Uruguay is considered the fourth most successful wine producing country in South America behind Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Its rise to prominence is based on the inky French grape, Tannat, known for its high tannin levels, hence its name. 

Tannat, the main grape of the Madiran, was brought over by Basque-French immigrant Pascual Harriague in 1870. (Decendants of the original cuttings still exist and are known as “Harriague.”) The grape proved perfectly suited to Uruguay’s sunny, but wet climate. It is produced in many examples of excellent dry red wines as well as a late harvest desert wine, that somehow tames the tannins into rich, sweet cocoa flavors. 
 
Other varietals grown in Uruguay are for reds: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Whites: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and some instances of Viognier.
