Bodegas Garzon Single Vineyard Merlot 2017
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, our estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering its hillside slopes, which 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 lush forests, rocky soils, granite boulders, and naturally occurring palm trees.
This vineyard is cooler than other blocks on the estate, with steep slopes and thin soils, and with excellent drainage due to the predominance of ballast in the upper layers.
Of an intense ruby red, this Merlot expresses delightful aromas of plum and blueberry. Its smooth texture and soft tannins contribute to the wine’s overall balance.
