Bodega Garzón Single Vineyard Petit Verdot

Bodega Garzón Single Vineyard Petit Verdot 2015

Garzon, Maldonado, San José, UruguayThis late ripening, single vineyard petit verdot is planted to the north, increasing its exposure to the sun and light and allowing full physiological maturity. This was fermented in concrete tanks before 12-18 months on the lees in French barrels and casks. The colour is an impressive reddish black. A tighter graveled framework rules the dense palate, one fleshed out with scented violets, black plums, wild blackberry. Beautiful precision, lift and minerality throughout, with petit verdot's characteristic raging tannins reduced to a potent fine-grained hum that vibrates on the finish. Impressive, textural and age worthy.Tasted: 05 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: CDN 53.00 estimated retail Producer: Bodega GarzónDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
