Albarino Reserva Bodegas Garzon 2020

£17.50

In stock

Bodegas Garzon is a very exciting winery situated in Maldondado on the Atlantic coast in Southern Uruguay. They have established themselves as the standard bearer of premium wines in Uruguay and regularly win trophies and medals at International competitions. The estate has more than 1000 small vineyard blocks with a multitude of microclimates, differing humidity levels, well drained granitic soils and cooling Atlantic breezes.

Albarino is not necessarily a grape you would expect to find here, but the proximity to the ocean makes for ideal growing conditions and Garzon have had great success with it. Their reserve wine is stainless steel fermented followed by 3-6 months on the lees for added complexity. The wine has a wonderful, vibrant freshness on the nose combining peach and citrus notes and the palate has a textured intensity with great balancing acidity and an explosion of ripe fruit.

This would be fabulous with some fresh grilled prawns or chilli squid or a ripe Somerset Brie.
