Bouza 2016 "A6" 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 Melilla, the relatively cool-climate vineyard that surrounds the winery. Vineyard rows in Melilla are uniquely topped with two feet of pink granite from a local quarry to collect and radiate additional heat for their grapes.
  • This bottling showcases the savory/smoky/earthy side of Tannat, in comparison to it’s cousin, their “B6” bottling, which tends to offer more purple fruit tones.
  • Year in and year out this is one of the richest, balanced, most memorable examples of single vineyard Tannat produced in Uruguay.
