Bodega Garzón is a family-owned winery in Maldonado on the Atlantic coast in southern Uruguay. They pioneered viticulture in this area over 10 years ago, and have since become the standard bearer for premium wines from Uruguay. In November 2018, their pioneering status was recognised by Wine Enthusiast with the ‘New World Winery of the Year’ award. The vineyards at Bodega Garzón are a patchwork quilt of 1,150 individual plots of around 0.2 hectares in size, each plot carefully chosen for a specific variety according to its soil and microclimate. The winery is specially designed to operate as sustainably as possible, and is the first winery outside North America to pursue LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Built on natural terraces, the winery uses cutting-edge technology and operates using a gravity system to ensure quality and energy efficiency at every stage of production.

The hand-harvested grapes for this Cabernet Franc were fermented in 150 hectolitre cement tanks. The wine was then aged for 6 to 12 months on the lees in stainless steel and large untoasted casks.

This has medium ruby colour. The nose is pacekd with fresh red cherry and plum, also with a Cherry liqueur element to it, zedarwood, tobacco leaf, hints of grass & minth as well as baking spice, red flowers; dry and full-bodied on the palate this has blackberry and cherry, with medium plus, finely structured tannin that lifts the ripe fruit flavours; I would recommend to decant this to get the full pleasure out of this wine. A wine perfectly made to go with Ribeye or roast dinner.
