Intense Albarino, with a delicate nose but mineral backbone.
The idyllic town of José Ignacio is a paradisiacal spot on the Uruguayan coast. A charming and intimate village with silent and quiet beaches, magical sunsets and relax by the sea. A famous lighthouse and a slogan: “Only the wind runs here”. A romantic scenery featuring fishermen boats, only 40 kilometers away from Punta del Este. The perfect combination of countryside and sea. A unique terroir for making premium wines and the Atlantic breeze blowing through the vine.
A small, family-run business, Altos de Jose Ignacio had its first commercial harvest in 2015. In typical Uruguayan fashion, the wines are created without the addition of any chemicals. The characteristics of the terroir display beautifully throughout their range, a source of endless pride for winemaker German Bruzzone.
Tasting Note: This Albariño is intense in the nose, with peach and citrus notes. There's a freshness and minerality mid-palate that is superb, with remarkable acidity and a round, crisp finish.
