POWERFUL RICH REDS

Powerful rich reds - TANNAT, Reserve, Garzon. Uruguay

2017 TANNAT, Reserve, Garzon. Uruguay

Bin: 556
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Grape Variety: 100% Tannat, matured for a year in large, old French oak barrels.
Producer: From their UK agents, Liberty Wines:
"Bodega Garzón is a family owned winery in Maldonado on the Atlantic coast in southern Uruguay. They pioneered viticulture in this area over 10 years ago, and have since become the standard-bearer for premium wines from Uruguay. In November 2018, their pioneering status was recognised by Wine Enthusiast with the ‘New World Winery of the Year’ award. The vineyards at Bodega Garzón are a patchwork quilt of 1,150 individual plots of around 0.2 hectares in size, each plot carefully chosen for a specific variety according to its soil and microclimate. The winery is specially designed to operate as sustainably as possible, and is the first winery outside North America to pursue LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Built on natural terraces, the winery uses cutting-edge technology and operates using a gravity system to ensure quality and energy efficiency at every stage of production."
Old Bridge Rating: The famously tough grape of Madiran, in SW France, is successfully tamed by the conditions in Uruguay, where it is the dominant variety. This is powerful, of course but with no rough edges to hold it back.
Press Reviews: 95 points in the International Wine Challenge 2019:
"Deep and intense colour. Concentrated dark fruits. Violets, bramble, elegant oak. Vibrant tension on the palate. Lively finish. Recommend decanting."
