Single Vineyard Tannat 2017
93 points, “Full-bodied, tannic yet polished and textured. Extremely long and flavourful.” – James Suckling
92 points, “Seductive cherry and plum nose. Supple, juicy beginning then develops dark, savoury tannin. Very long finish.” – Decanter Magazine
Bodega Garzón’s Single Vineyard Tannat 2017 was crowned ‘Wine of the Week’ on Jancis Robinson’s website in mid-June 2020. The taster, Richard Hemming MW, “was delighted to discover how such a big wine could be so drinkable”, and praised its “savoury character, just-ripe fruit and spicy complexity”.
Uruguay looks set to be the next big thing in wine. Thanks to huge investment and unique terroir, the wines are some of the most exciting to come out of South America in recent years. We instantly fell for this deep, dark red made from the country’s signature grape variety. Bodega Garzón has an incredible patchwork quilt of 1,150 individual tiny plots, this comes from one of their finest. Strawberries, black cherries and plums are joined by an altogether dark seam of tar, mocha, praline, Russian Caravan tea, black olive, spice and generous oak. An instant classic that will appeal to adventurous fans of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Serve alongside the Sunday roast, rich comfort food, Mexican mole, cassoulet, Beluga lentil stews, charred portobello mushrooms or anything where the cheese goes crunchy on the edge if the dish.
The family-owned Bodega Garzón was chosen by Wine Enthusiast as the New World Winery of the Year 2018. One sip of their wines or a stroll around their pioneering vineyards and it’s not hard to see why. In planting his vineyards, owners Alejandro and Bettina Bulgheroni enlisted the help of winemaker extraordinaire Alberto Antonini, which was quite the coup. A key player in the international success of Argentine Malbec and considered one of the world’s top wine consultants, Antonini now makes wine at the acclaimed Poggiotondo and Altos Las Hormigas, following stints at Frescobaldi and Antinori. Located about two hours along the coast from Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, Bodega Garzón’s stunning and sustainable winery generates wind and photovoltaic energy, the roofs are covered in greenery and they are on course to become the first Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design-certified winery outside North America. As the biggest exporter of Uruguayan wine, they are the standard bearer for the whole nation.
