Description

Bodega Garzon Estate Viognier 2019

Bodega Garzon Estate Viognier opens with a bouquet of ripe white peach, melon and honeysuckle aromas. The elegant palate has a firm acidity and creamy mouthfeel. Fresh flavours of rich peach, dried apricot and melon with a steely minerality that adds a refreshing element. Closes in an intense finish that doesn't fail to delight.

100% Viognier. The fruit for this wine comes entirely from bodega Garzon's estate vineyards. Bodega Garzon is close to Punta del Este, La Barra, and Jose Ignacio – Uruguayan Paradise at its best, with mesmerizing landscapes. Eleven miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering its hillside slopes, which benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity, and an intense canopy management. These factors allow the vines to develop with maximum exposure to the sun providing rich, expressive fruit. The soil composition is decomposed granite, which has excellent drainage and minerality.
Hand-harvesting the grapes, then fermentation in traditional temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 17°C for two weeks. The wine then ages on lees in stainless steel for 3–6 months before bottling.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES



 Very attractive aromas of sliced peaches and melon follow through to a medium to full body with a creamy texture and a fruity, almost savory hint at the finish, together with lots of pineapple and melon. Drink now.

 Unctuous and ample, with many ripe fruits and an accent on salinity, this one moves through the mouth with its creaminess. Go for grilled grouper.
