BODEGAS GARZON GARZON ALBARINO
The greatest wines of the world are produced where a grape varietal finds the ideal conditions to express itself in a natural and authentic way. At Bodega Garzón, they are guided by a philosophy to fully express their unique terroir with wines that are pure, have distinct tension, and a vitality that leads to delicious drinkability.
Bodega Garzón is close to Punta del Este, La Barra, and Jose Ignacio - Uruguayan Paradise at its best with mesmerizing landscapes. Located eleven miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering its hillside slopes that benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity, and intense canopy management. These factors allow the vines to develop with maximum exposure to the sun providing rich, expressive fruit. The vineyards are surrounded by a lush forest, rocky soils, boulders, and palm trees.
Pale yellow with greenish reflections, this Albariño is intense in the nose, with peach and citrus notes. There’s a freshness and minerality mid-palate that is superb, with remarkable acidity and a round, crisp finish.
Excellent pairings for this wine are cod with cockles, citrus prawn salad, or traditional grilled seafood with warm mango salad and beans. It is delightfully well suited to Asian food, Peruvian ceviche, or a fresh tuna salad.
