Bouza 2017 "B6" Tannat

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.
  • Bouza’s Winemaker, Dr. Eduardo Boido, is considered Uruguay’s authority on all things Tannat.
ABOUT THE WINE
  • Sourced from Las Violetas, Bouza’s warmer, clay-driven vineyard located 15 miles north of the winery.
  • This bottling shows more purple fruit aromas and flavors in comparison to it’s cousin, their “A6” bottling, which tends to be more savory and soil-driven.
  • Year in and year out this is one of the richest, balanced, most memorable examples of single vineyard Tannat produced in Uruguay.
