Winery Notes
Of a strong purple colour with violet reflections, this noble red wine has mineral aromas coming from ripe peppers, spices and fruits of the forest accompanied by a subtle chocolate note and smoked hints coming from selected barrels. With gentle tannins in mouth, it mixes prunes and ripe blackberries with fresh eucalyptus and mint notes that add to its complexity.
About Bodega Garzon
Located between Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay stands as one of the most important countries of the Latin American wine world. Vine growing all over the land benefits from the country's location -- at the same latitude as the wine growing regions of Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand -- and mild weather. Most Uruguayan wineries are situated inland or on the coast, and their production grows every year.

Today the wine industry is present in 15 out of the 19 departments of the country. More than 90 million litres are produced from 9,000 hectares of vineyards where family work prevails and focuses on red grapes such as Tannat, Merlot, Cabernet and Malbec, and white grapes such as Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon or Riesling, among others. These varietals are cultivated on vast clay soils and stony ground surrounded by exotic and astonishing landscapes characterized by the influence of Atlantic breezes.



A unique terroir. An environment beyond comparison.

Great wines are born in great terroirs, and Garzón vineyards prove it: they are located in a privileged Uruguayan land, near Punta del Este, La Barra and José Ignacio, Uruguay's holiday paradise. Its varied landscapes, its natural setting and the perfect combination of history and future, have motivated the creation of exclusive restaurants and hotel resorts in the surrounding areas that confers the environments with an aura of sophistication. This particular location offers an outstanding environment for our plantations. The terroir makes the difference.

Garzón's soil belongs geologically to what is known as Crystalline Basement, which originated 2.5 billion years ago. As it altered and eroded through millions of years of geological processes, ballast, like the previous rock formations, gave shape to this fantastic thin and rocky soil, with excellent drainage and very rich in minerals which the vine roots absorb. This endows the wine with mineral wealth, excellence, complexity and gracefulness. Garzón's soil is a rather charming concept related to the terroir and very easy to explain: a clear, strong message for all premium wine lovers.

The sea breeze in our wines

Another fundamental feature of our terroir is the crucial influence exerted by the Atlantic Ocean, which is only 18 kilometres (11 miles) away. This provides a constant and very pleasant fresh breeze that blows through our grapes, something recognizable in our wines too. Hence the vibrant notes of our fresh, mineral white wines, as well as their significant varietal character. In turn, our red wines are fresh and juicy, showing gentle tannins and a delicate mineral touch.
