Garzon Reserva Tannat, Maldonado, Uruguay 2016

Regular price £16.49

A unique expression of the Tannat grape, intense and fruit driven, from its home from Home - Uruguay.

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. 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.

Tasting Note: 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.
