Bracing but concentrated, this wine puts aromas of key lime pie, Atlantic sea spray, and orange blossom in the driver’s seat, while a mouthful of melon and grapefruit make up this vibrant and intense house favorite. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better Sauvignon for the money than this one.

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!

A medium-bodied, fresh white with aromas of fresh apricot, apple danish, yoghurt and wet stones. Quite a subtle, creamy expression with characteristic bright acidity. Drink now.
