McH_Tiger Country 2010 bottle.jpg

This wine is a blend inspired by the tannins of the south. Comprising approximately 55% Tempranillo, 22% Graciano, 20% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruit is crushed into small open fermenters, and pressed off still with a touch of sweetness. It is then transferred to 2 year old French oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is held in oak for 9 months prior to bottling.

Tasting note

Aromas of cherry cola, sarsaparilla and ripe black plum abound. Underlying sweet spice and savoury peanut husk notes complete the complex bouquet. A supple palate brimming with ripe plum and sweet cola nut fruit gives way to red strap liquorice and dusty cocoa tannins.
