Description

Garzon Tannat

Garzon Tannat red wine represents the signature Uruguayan grape varietal of Tannat that has found its ideal soil in Garzon.

The cool climate gives this expression of  Garzon Tannat an intense red and black fruit flavour with lingering aftertaste balanced by freshness and softness.

Only 11 miles from the Atlantic coast, in one of the most picturesque parts of Uruguay, lies Bodega Garzon.

Its land is split equally between vineyards and olive groves and the stunning views prompted consultant winemaker, Albert Antonini, to liken the region to his native Tuscany.

Despite the similarities in geography to Italy, the vineyards lie on the same latitude as New Zealand. This means cool climate styles are the most prominent and, unusually for South America,

Garzon’s focus is on Tannat and Albarino. The winery itself was designed with energy efficiency in mind. Solar panels generate up to 40% of energy requirements, whilst the use of gravity wherever possible minimises emissions.

Tannat is normally found in the Basque-influenced regions of France near the Pyrénées especially in the Madiran appellation. http://bodegagarzon.com/

Garzon Tannat is notable for its inky colour and very high tannin levels and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Fer to soften the astringency and make it more approachable.

Basque settlers took Tannat with them to Uruguay in the 19th century and the variety flourished to become the red grape of Uruguay.

The Tannat wines produced here are characterized by more elegant and softer tannins and blackberry fruit notes compared to French Tannats.

Vineyards in Uruguay have begun to distinguish between the “old vines” that are descendants from the original cuttings brought over from Europe and the new clones being produced today.

The newer vines tend to produce more powerful wines with higher alcohol levels but less acidity and complex fruit characteristics.

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
