The blend is plush and juicy with predominantly red fruit aromas from the Tannat, tempered by the softness and character of Marselan, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The palate is well balanced, medium bodied, with layers of flavour and soft tannins. Red fruits are expressed both on the nose and palate, with subtle tannins and a smooth finish.

The hand-harvested grapes were processed separately. After five days of maceration the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at 26-28°C for one week with twice daily pump overs. The wines then remained in tank for a further three to six months on the lees before blending and bottling.

Located eleven miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering its hillside slopes that benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity, and 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 a lush forest, rocky soils, boulders, and palm trees.

2020 was the best vintage compared to recent years, due to cold but regular temperatures throughout the winter and during budburst, which produced good clusters of berries. Scarce rainfall and good diurnal ranges in temperature throughout the summer allowed for excellent conditions in the vineyards and a perfect ripening of the grapes. The harvest began on 27th January and ended on 19th March, almost 10 days earlier than usual. Cool nights throughout the summer ensured that the resulting wines had very well-balanced acidity, optimum sugar levels, great character and freshness.

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. The vineyards at Bodega Garzón are a patchwork quilt of 1,150 individual plots of around 0.2 hectares in size, each plot carefully chosen for a specific variety according to its soil and microclimate. The winery is specially designed to operate as sustainably as possible, and is the first winery outside North America to pursue LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Built on natural terraces, the winery uses cutting-edge technology and operates using a gravity system to ensure quality and energy efficiency at every stage of production.
