Winemaker Notes

Obtained from a careful selection of Pinot Noir grapes, this Rosé wine presents an elegant pale pink color. The nose is intense and fruity, with aromas reminiscent of red fruits such as cherries and strawberries. Its mouth is well balanced, with an excellent development. Its strong acidity and minerality make it an ideal wine to enjoy in marine climates.

This fresh rosé wine is a perfect companion for Mediterranean food, tapas, sushi, salmon, and roasted fish. It is an ideal pairing for deserts with chocolate and cherry flavors. Enjoy it cold.

COMMENTARY: Ever since I came across the Garzón wines several years ago, I immediately knew that this was a property worth further exploration, and I am not only talking about Tannat. The 2018 Garzón Pinot Noir Rosé is on a par with the best pink wines in the world. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh and well-balanced. Its aromas and flavors of bright strawberries and a shading of minerality make it a beautiful pairing choice with fresh salmon sashimi. (Tasted: October 12, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Rose petals, watermelon, strawberries and cream. Bright and fresh on the palate with razor-sharp acidity and a fresh finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Bodega Garzon Uruguay An Inside Look at Bodega Garzon Winery Video

The Greatest Wines of the World are produced where the grape variety finds the ideal conditions to express itself in a natural and authentic way; like at Garzón, where they produce wines that result from the perfect integration of terroir and the different cultivated varieties.

Bodega Garzón is close to Punta del Este, La Barra and José Ignacio, the Uruguayan paradise with mesmerizing landscapes and the perfect combination of past, present and future. The charm of this sophisticated region, located among sloping hills that meet the sea is portrayed in the postcards of Garzón, a small town with 600 inhabitants which is home to tourists, farmers and local artists. This picturesque landscape offers the best environment for their vineyards, orchards and groves.

The wines love the terroir of Garzón with its ballast hills, a soft, stony soil and Atlantic breezes flowing over the vines that result in perfect conditions for creating elegant and complex wines. Therefore, Garzon products are the result of a careful selection of terroir which is appropriate for the development of premium wines and a wide range of grape varieties. This allows the best winemakers to experiment with a new environment and create optimal blends for a market increasingly eager for new wines. The resultant winemaking is focused on producing wines of the highest quality with a distinctive identity, strong personality and sense of place.

Considered one of the most environmentally sustainable countries in the world, Uruguay is also the fourth largest wine producing country in South America. But in contrast to its neighbors (Chile, Argentina and even Brazil) Uruguay keeps more in step with its European progenitors where land small holdings are most common. Most Uruguayan farms are tiny (averaging only about five hectares) and family-run, many dating back multiple generations. At this size, growers either make small amounts of wine for local consumption or sell grapes to a nearby winery. In all of Uruguay there are close to 3,500 growers but fewer than 300 wineries.

On these small plots of land, manual tending and harvesting, as well as low yields are favored; this small agricultural country has never had a need for large-scale chemical fertilizers or insecticides. Their thriving meat industry also follows the same standards: hormones have been banned since 1968 and today all Uruguayan beef is organic and grass-fed.

Uruguay’s best vineyards are on the Atlantic coast, in Canelones and Maldonado (where cooling breezes lessen humidity) or found hugging its border with Argentina. With a climate similar to Bordeaux and soils clay-rich and calcareous, Uruguay is perfect for Tannat, a thick-skinned, red variety native to Southwest, France. A great Tannat from Uruguay will have no lack of rich red and black fruit, lots of sweet spice and a hefty structure. Sometimes winemakers blend Merlot or Pinot noir with Tannat to soften up its rough edges.

The best Uruguayan whites include Sauvignon blanc and Albarino.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
