Talk about bang for the buck. This stunning expression of Albarino delivers quality that is punching well above it’s weight class. Stone fruit, melon, honey and floral tones assault the senses. With its close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, a layer of mineral and salinity is added to this wine, making a perfect complement to the fast jabbing fruit on the palate. An absolute knockout.

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!

Very attractive aromas of sliced peaches and melon follow through to a medium to full body with a creamy texture and a fruity, almost savory hint at the finish, together with lots of pineapple and melon.
