Bouza 2020 Riesling Pan de Azúcar

PRODUCER INFO
  • Juan and Elisa Bouza established their winery in 2000 by restoring a historic winery originally built in the 1940’s by Numa Pesquera in the outskirts of Montevideo.
  • Over the last ten years Bouza has established itself as Uruguay’s most critically acclaimed producer.
  • Uruguay’s temperate, Atlantic influenced climate sees four distinct seasons, and temperatures rarely exceed 93 degrees.
ABOUT THE WINE
  • Grapes are sourced from a 1.5 hectare plot at the foot of Cerro Pan de Azúcar in Maldonado that was planted in just 2010.
  • This vintage shows the marked improvement of those vines with a dry Riesling bursting with fruit and spice. The mouth is warm and round with a savory finish.
