Description

Bodega Garzón Balasto 2017/2018

Garzón’s top selection – a blend of tannat and cabernet franc, with a touch of merlot and marselan. This elegantly spiced Bodega Garzón Balasto displays fresh red and black fruit notes. In the mouth, the tannins are juicy and vibrant with energy yet savoury and silky with each sip. The balancing on the palate of fruity and savoury element, accompanied by the creaminess in the finish gives an intriguing taste. This gives Bodega Garzón Balasto a structured and polished with excellent texture and long finish.

40% Tannat, 35% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Marselan. The ballast soil at Bodega Garzón is made up of decomposed granite, which has excellent drainage and minerality. It is ideal for providing the complexity, energy and vibrancy to this iconic Uruguyan wine. Fermented in cement and then aged for 20 months in untoasted French oak.

Pairing tips: A dynamic bottle that goes perfectly with a good cut of steak that brings out the complexity and savoury element of this bouquet.

Vintage available: 2017 / 2018

Ripe nose of dense berry fruit with well-managed oak notes and earthy undertones. Really fresh acidity and lovely purity.

 – 93 POINTS
Powerful, featuring well-knit flavors of blackberry, dark currant and plum tart, with accents of dark olive and dried savory herbs. The well-spiced and juicy finish offers dark chocolate notes, backed by crisp, firm tannins. Tannat, Cabernet Franc, Marselan and Merlot.
Garzón’s top selection is a blend of tannat and cabernet franc, with five percent each of merlot and marselan. The vines grow on rolling hills of ancient weather granite, a soil called balasto, 11 miles from the Atlantic, where Alejandro Bulgheroni’s deep pockets financed the planting of 1,000 separate vineyard blocks. Germán Bruzzone works with consulting winemaker Alberto Antonini on the project, fermenting this wine in cement, then aging it for 20 months in large, untoasted French oak casks. The first impression the wine gives is freshness, a coastal coolness and sunny brightness pervading its berry-scented fruit. The last impression is dynamic, with energy coursing through the savory tannins that linger on the breath long after each taste. It’s silky and stylish with dark tones of oak shadowing the red cherries, blackberries and fresh plums that the flavors bring to mind. As one taster noted, “It’s like watching an Olympic gymnast; they make it look so easy.”
