Bodega Garzon Reserve Albarino 2021
An excellent, aromatic Albarino from Bodega Garzon, one of Uruguay's leading new wave producers.
This superb wine is pale yellow in colour with green reflections. On the nose, there are intense aromas of peach and citrus. The freshness and minerality on the mid-palate is superb, ably supported by a remarkable acidity which frames the juicy fruit on the crisp finish.
Family-owned Bodega Garzon is one of Uruguay's leading new wave producers, located just 11 miles from the Atlatntic Ocean, with a patchwork of vineyards covering a wide range of terroirs. Well-draining granitic soils and cooling Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen steadily.
They are widely regarded as one of the names to watch from this emerging wine country, with their excellent Tannat and Albarino receiving praise from critics.
