Bodega Garzon Reserve Tannat 2020
Bodega Garzon Reserve Tannat
Region: Garzón, Maldonado, Uruguay
Bottle size: 75cl
Notes: Vegan, Vegetarian
Deep purple in colour, this wine shows intense aromas of plum, raspberry and black fruits on the nose, with a hint of spice. On the palate it is full-bodied, with ripe tannins complementing the juicy dark fruit and mineral notes.
Located 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering hillside slopes, which benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity and intense canopy management. Well-draining granitic soils and cooling Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen steadily.
Bodega Garzón is a family-owned winery in Maldonado on the Atlantic coast in southern Uruguay. They pioneered viticulture in this area over 10 years ago, and have since become the standard-bearer for premium wines from Uruguay. In November 2018, their pioneering status was recognised by Wine Enthusiast with the ‘New World Winery of the Year’ award.
