Bodega Garzón Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Garzon, Maldonado, San José, UruguayYou feel the direction of Antonini here. By that, we mean that you don’t feel it, because this pinot noir is a great example of what he means when he says less is more. Fermented in concrete, this spends 12-18 months in French oak barrels and casks. Smoked branch, prune, dark cherry and blackberry mark the nose of this ripe, Next World pinot noir. Potent and full but with an elegance that tempers the tobacco, ash, blackcurrant, black cherry, mineral flavours. Crunchy acidity, grippy tannins and scented florals tightening up the finish. A full-bodied pinot noir but with bright minerality that speaks to the granite soils.Tasted: 05 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: CDN 53.00 estimated retail Producer: Bodega GarzónUPC: 7730951080464
