    Tannat is best known as the dominant grape variety in Madiran, Southwest France’s most famous red wine. The grape probably originated in the Basque country and almost certainly derives its French name from its high tannin levels. Tannat was planted by Basque settlers in Uruguay in the 19th century.

    Bodega Garzón is a family-owned winery in Maldonado, located 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean in southern Uruguay.  Well-draining granitic soils and cooling Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen steadily. The vineyards are surrounded by lush forests, palm trees, rocky soils and granite boulders. This single vineyard Tannat comes from a site which is cooler than the other blocks on the estate, with steep slopes, thin soils and excellent drainage thanks to the predominance of ballast in the upper layers.

    Deep purple in colour, this powerful Tannat has an elegant nose with aromas of cherries, strawberries and black plums with hints of smoky tobacco and dark chocolate. Full bodied, with fresh acidity and firm tannins complementing the spicy black fruit on a long, intense finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine.

We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
