Bodega Garzón Single Vineyard Albariño 2016

Garzon, Maldonado, San José, UruguayThe vineyard's southern orientation means less intense afternoon sun, and more direct exposure to Atlantic Ocean breezes. Perfumed peach blossoms, light honeysuckle, and fragrant lime throughout. Delicate tropical fruits glide on a creamy palate, buoyed by a fine, steady stream of salty minerality and an alluring textured, fuzzy grip of concrete. A very expressive wine right through its lengthy, anise-scented finish. Fermented in cement, 20 percent of this single vineyard albariño spends three to six months on the lees in French oak barrels, with the remainder aged in cement tanks.
