2020 Bodega Garzon Tannat de Corte
£14.95 per bottle


Celebrate International Tannat day with this classy Uruguayan red.
April 14th is international Tannat day so why not crack open a bottle of our own Tannat from the Uruguayan producer Bodega Garzon
The Tannat grape variery originates from the south west of France where it is the constituent part of the wines of Madiran, close to the Pyrenees. Basque emigrants took the Tannat to Uruguay and it is now the most widely planted grape variety there.
As the name would suggest, Tannat produces wines with a firm tannic structure. The Uruguayan versions are more laid-back than their French counterparts with less astringency making them an ideal introduction to Tannat

Bodega Garzon is situated about 10 miles inland from the Atlantic coast near the famous resort of Punto del Este. The maritime climate  has a moderating climatic influence on the vineyards leading to elegant, well balanced wines.
Their Tannat de Corte is their estate wine which is 80% Tannat with small amounts of Marselan, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc complementing it. Ready to drink now, the wine exhibits ripe black fruit with violet notes with smooth tannins.
As with many South American wines, the Garzon Tannat is a perfect match for roast red meats and barbeques, as well as hard cheeses and grilled mushrooms.
Available in store and online for £14.95 and by the bottle in our lounge for £24.95 (including corkage)
