About The Wine
Arriving in Uruguay with Basque settlers in the 19th century, Tannat’s a red grape with thick skins, offering perfect protection from the wet Atlantic winds.
Garzon’s stunning winery and restaurant are just inland from the coast, with a range of reds perfectly matched to star Argentinian chef Francis Mallman’s open fire cooking.
With its approachable flavours of dusty dark cherry, bramble and spice this is well judged and supple, with just enough structure.
About Bodega Garzon
Established in 2010 by Argentinian Alejandro Bulgheroni, Bodega Garzon has changed the landscape of Uruguayan wine.
With accomplished winemaking consultant Alberto Antonini adding his guidance, it is an ambitious, world class project doing big things to build the profile of this little South American country’s rich winemaking heritage.
Working chiefly with its celebrated red grape Tannat, the wet, windy Atlantic influence has also inspired significant plantings of the white Albarino grape as well.
