Tasting Notes

Highly aromatic, with minerals, flowers, and tropical notes (including pineapple and lime).  There’s the slightest suggestion of the sea as well.  The attack is round with light peach, apricot and a beautiful minerality. This wine is temperature sensitive so don’t drink it too cold. The longer finish offers white pepper, citrus, and herb notes.  This is a medium body wine with medium acidity.

WINE INFORMATION

Located between Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay vine growing all over the land benefits from the country’s location with the same latitude as the wine growing regions of Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand and mild weather. Uruguay is well known for the production of Tannat but as time goes by, we are seeing wines made from different grapes arriving into the US.

When Alejandro Bulgheroni and his wife, Bettina, discovered Garzón in 1999, they saw in it their “little Uruguayan Tuscany” and began working on their dream.  Today Bodega Garzón is the first LEED certified winery in South America. Located eleven miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering its hillside slopes, which benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity, and an intense canopy management. These factors allow the vines to develop with maximum exposure to the sun providing rich, expressive fruit. The vineyards are surrounded by lush forests, rocky soils, granite boulders, and naturally occurring palm trees.

After harvest the grapes are carefully sorted. Temperature controlled fermentation happens in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine is aged for 3 to 6 months on the lees to increase complexity and texture.
