Garzón Tannat Reserva 2016 - Uruguay
Bodega Garzón is close to Punta del Este, La Barra, and Jose Ignacio – Uruguayan Paradise at its best, with mesmerizing landscapes. 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.
Aged 6 to 12 months in French oak barrels and casks, this 100% tannat is a juicy, full-bodied wine. It is purple in colour with very fresh aromas reminiscent of red and black fruits such as plums and raspberries, and delicate spices. With mature tannins and minerality, it speaks of its terroir.
