Juicy red fruits and spices with silky tannins, a classic Uruguay Tannat
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: A juicy wine with fresh aromas of plums, raspberries and spices. It has soft silky tannins to compliment the ripe blackberry and oak flavours on the palate
Critics: Decanter 93/100
