Bodega Garzón Estate Viognier, Uruguay
This wine comes from a recent Luke's Case where we had a few bottles left over. Bodega Garzón is a family-owned winery that we are very familiar with. They are based in Maldonado on the Atlantic coast in southern Uruguay. They pioneered viticulture in this area over 10 years ago, and have since become the standard-bearer for premium wines from Uruguay. In November 2018, their pioneering status was recognised by Wine Enthusiast with the ‘New World Winery of the Year’ award. One of my favourite white grapes is Viognier - slightly perfumed I think it provides so much complexity. I can only see it rising in popularity over the coming years. It makes sense why Garzon have opted to grow the vines and make this wine which is a stunning expression of a premium Viognier.
