2013 Garzón Sauvignon Blanc Uruguay

$16.95

A spry and sexy little white, this would be right at home in an ice bucket on the beach in Punta del Este. Quenching and mouth-filling, it’s a beautiful combination of green apple, nectarine, lemongrass and citrus flavors. There’s also enough acidity to tango with the mid-palate density. Pay attention… when this place ends up on the cover of a wine magazine, we will remind you that we told you first.

When Alejandro Bulgheroni and his wife, Bettina, discovered Garzón in 1999, they saw in it their "little Uruguayan Tuscany." Their family dream that has come true today. They've created a new agricultural paradise dedicated to growing outstanding wines of character while keeping sustainability front and center. As of the 2014 harvest Bodega Garzón was crowned the first sustainable winery built outside North America in accordance with the stringent requirements set down by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a rating system developed by the USGBC which consists of a set of rules regarding strategic plans aimed at ensuring building sustainability. Bodega Garzón and her ample vineyards are situated near the Punta del Este along Uruguay's east coast. At a mere 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean the Estate's 1,000 small vineyard blocks - each with varying micro-climates, soil composition and exposure - are something uniquely special. World renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini has the pleasure of finessing the pristine fruit into its optimal expression. All in all, this is a match made in heaven and we can't wait to see what they're going to do next!
