Bouza 2022 Albariño

  • 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.
  • Bouza’s Winemaker, Dr. Eduardo Boido, is considered Uruguay’s authority on all things Tannat.
  • This Albarino started as a bit of an experiment for Bouza and has quickly turned into one of the winery’s most sought after bottlings – It is the “go to” stylish white wine of cultural hotspot Punta del Este.
  • The cuttings planted in this vineyard come from the rural plots of Bouza family relatives in Rias Biaxas, Spain.
  • Grapes are sourced from colder, less exposed blocks in their Melilla and Las Violetas vineyards.
