Fruity and charming rendition of Uruguay's signature red grape
Deep purple in colour with fresh aromas of dark plums, raspberries and black liquorice. A light touch of oak on the palate with flavours of vanilla, cocoa, dried herbs alongside juicy cassis and dark cherries. Full-bodied and generous with ripe tannins and an earthy finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
While originally a native of France, the Tannat grape is now to Uruguay what Malbec is to Argentina. With a profile that is big and bold as well as incredibly expressive of terroir, it’s a grape that’s very much on the rise. Since bursting onto the scene in 2018 with their incredible state-of-the-art winery (search it out if you haven't already), Bodega Garzon are considered one of its primary exponents both in South America and beyond. Why not see what all the fuss is about?
