95-points, Platinum: Best Central South American White,
Decanter World Wine Awards 2017

Garzón is one of only a handful of Albariño producers in all of Uruguay, and winemakers Alberto Antonini and Germán Bruzzone have knocked this one out of the park! Pear, kumquat and crisp minerality in this Spanish variety kick into high gear on the mid-palate, and the lifted finish will have you hollering for a piece of grilled fish dusted with a little saffron salt. Decanter called it a "Textbook example Albariño with notes of grapefruit, apples and wild flowers," and awarded it a Platinum Medal - Best Central South American White in 2017. 

Mercy! Acclaim like this calls for a case!

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!
