Bodega Garzón Estate Pinot Noir Rosé 2016Garzon, Maldonado, San José, UruguayThis is better than last year's edition but at 14 percent alcohol it lacks the lift and freshness we are looking for. It's a potent light pink that charms with notes of light strawberries, wild raspberries and a fresh herbal thrush. The sun-warmed ripeness and weighty palate is offset by a stream of minerality that fights the flat finish. This spent three-six months on the lees in stainless steel.Tasted: 05 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: CDN 24.39 estimated retail Producer: Bodega GarzónDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
