I recently discovered wines from Madiran while in a class on "Bitterness in wines".
I like my coffee black, so I like bitterness on my palate so this was a sure bet for me when it arrived this week in the latest Vintages release at the LCBO.
While not as astringent as I was expecting, I was pleasantly surprised that it did offer a generous amount of acidity which seemed to keep things in balance.
Very food friend wine. Cherry, plum, and blackberry fruit, Grippy tannins, and mouth-watering acidity support a long finish.
While mostly Tannat, there is also some Cab Sauvignon and Cab France blended in. Good BBQ wine this summer.
Worth a try!
