Crushed and Cured

Bodega Garzón Estate, `Pinot Noir Rosé de Corte', Maldonado, Uruguay, 2023


A delicate pale salmon colour, this Pinot Rosé de Corte is elegant and expressive. Its intense aroma is reminiscent of fresh strawberries and blackberries. Crisp, with a distinct minerality and balanced acidity. Notes of cherry weave throughout and continue in the aromatics.

Bodega Garzón is a family-owned winery 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.

Located 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering hillside slopes that benefit from varying microclimates and different levels of humidity allow the vines to develop with maximum exposure to the sun. 

Following careful sorting, the grapes were destemmed at the winery. After gentle pressing, they spent an hour on skins to extract colour before fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks for 15 days. The wine then spent between three and six months on its lees in stainless-steel tanks prior to bottling.
