Description

Bodega Garzón Balasto 2018

Grape Varietals and Region: Garzón’s top selection – a blend of tannat and cabernet franc, with a touch of merlot and marselan. 40% Tannat, 35% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Marselan. The ballast soil at Bodega Garzón is made up of decomposed granite, which has excellent drainage and minerality. It is ideal for providing the complexity, energy and vibrancy to this iconic Uruguyan wine.

Taste Profile: This elegantly spiced wine displays fresh red and black fruit notes. In the mouth, the tannins are juicy and vibrant with energy yet savoury and silky with each sip. The balancing on the palate of fruity and savoury element, accompanied by the creaminess in the finish gives an intriguing taste. This gives Bodega Garzón Balasto a structured and polished with excellent texture and long finish.

Winemaking Process: Fermented in cement and then aged for 20 months in untoasted French oak.

How about a solid bottle of 100% Tannat!
