Bodega Garzón Balasto 2018Garzón’s top selection – a blend of tannat and cabernet franc, with a touch of merlot and marselan. This elegantly spiced Bodega Garzón Balasto 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.
Pairing tips: A dynamic bottle that goes perfectly with a good cut of steak that brings out the complexity and savoury element of this bouquet.

Ripe nose of dense berry fruit with well-managed oak notes and earthy undertones. Really fresh acidity and lovely purity.
