A more powerful, and perhaps nuanced, example of Albarino from a single vineyard. Rich floral tones, this time accentuated with mangoes, nutmeg and baking spices. The body is full and coats the palate. Mineral and white pepper are coupled with a long finish. A must have for Albarino lovers.
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 white with aromas of fresh pineapple, lemon zest, chamomile, sea salt and crushed stones. Pretty layers of stone fruit and stones, accompanied by bright, tangy acidity throughout. Oily for an albarino. Drink now.
