The wine is dark purple in color and with blackberry and cassis notes, wood-spice aromas, and a full body. Toasty oak adds coffee and chocolate notes. On the finish, it's peppery, full and textured.
The estate-grown, organic grapes are harvested and sorted by hand and vinified with minimal intervention to maximize the expression of terroir. The wine is then aged for 6 to 12 months in French oak barrels and casks.
Bodega Garzón is a family-owned winery in Maldonado on the Atlantic coast in southern Uruguay. Wine Enthusiast gave them the ‘New World Winery of the Year’ award 2018. The vineyards are a patchwork quilt of a thousand small .2 hectare plots on terraces that allow gravity to make things more efficient. The stunning winery is the first sustainable, LEED certified (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) winery outside North America.
