You can almost smell the faint wisps of Atlantic breezes in this savory, herby Pinot Noir from Uruguay. Pretty notes of raspberries and guava overlay wet granite scents and a smooth, balanced mouthfeel. Pair this one with a weeknight pork chop with balsamic reduction, and be transported!
Blessed with pristine views of the Atlantic, an unspoiled ecosystem, and dusty, charismatic back streets, the Punta del Este zone of Uruguay is very quickly becoming a new Côte d’Azur for discerning travelers of means. Nearby, wine entrepreneur Alejandro Bulgheroni established Bodega Garzón, a sustainable, earth-friendly wine estate, restaurant, and private club. Wind and solar power provide 40% of the property’s energy needs, and world-renowned chef Francis Mallman is the Ambassador and Culinary Director for the estate. Quite simply, no expense has been spared to make this winery a showpiece of the southern hemisphere. Blessed with fast-draining granite sands called “balasto,” these rolling hills are heaven for wine grapes, especially Tannat. We were also thrilled to discover some delightful reds like Petit Verdot and Marselan, as well as award-winning Albariño that is some of the best made outside of Spain. We invite you to experience just how sumptuous and luxurious Uruguayan wine can be!
Spice and roasted aromas dominate this wine's earthy nose. It's aggressive on the palate, with scratchy tannins and little fruit. A heavy dose of wood makes for smoky flavors of roasted plum and berry that culminate with clove on the finish.
