This red wine represents the signature Uruguayan grape varietal that has found its ideal soil in Garzon. This expression of Tannat is an intense red and black fruit wine with lingering aftertaste, freshness and softness.
This wine is fermented in both new oak casks and steel vats in order to soften out the tannins and to retain the characteristic black fruit flavours found in the Tannat grape.
Only 11 miles from the Atlantic coast, in one of the most picturesque parts of Uruguay, lies Bodega Garzon. Its land is split equally between vineyards and olive groves and the stunning views prompted consultant winemaker, Albert Antonini, to liken the region to his native Tuscany.
Despite the similarities in geography to Italy, the vineyards lie on the same latitude as New Zealand. This means cool climate styles are the most prominent and, unusually for South America, Garzon’s focus is on Tannat and Albarino.
The winery itself was designed with energy efficiency in mind. Solar panels generate up to 40% of energy requirements, whilst the use of gravity wherever possible minimises emissions.
