Is Tannat the world's only palendromic grape variety? In recent years, Uruguayan wineries began courting international markets with inventive blends and with a signature red called Tannat.  

Tannat grape vines, originally from the southwest of France, were first planted in Uruguay in 1870 by a Basque immigrant. The vines flourished, yielding a suppler taste than their sometimes astringent (due to high tannin levels) European counterparts.  Winemakers talked about developing tannat wines that adapt better to global palates (drinkers abroad may find the wine too rustic or earthy), about crafting unique blends, and about diversifying their portfolios with popular grapes.
