2020 Bodega Garzon Reserva Marselan

$17.95

This unique and often undiscovered varietal could be your new favorite, especially when it comes to surprising your wine-loving friends. An exciting blend of red fruits, mint and delightful minerality. Not found in many places in the world, but we’re determined to change that. A very balanced wine that has many pairing applications. Admit it, you’re curious…give it a try!

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!

James Suckling 

Brooding nose with lots of blackberries, tar, hot stones and violets. There’s a hint of dried black fruit, too. A full-bodied red, showing a solid mid-palate, laden with rich and supple blackberry fruit and silky tannins. Just very slightly potent on the nose. Drink or hold.
