Having "worked" the Tannat as a few other wineries as now, Alpha Estate gives us a fine varietal label based on strong red variety that excels (mostly) in Uruguay. It is a wine that aspires for food, and not that "and that" to give his best, and transform any meal into a memorable wine-gastronomic experience!
