Wine tasting events at La Bodega over the weekends, is something folks should look out for, especially those who love their wines.
The wines features this time round included great cuvees such as Bodega Garzon Tannat, Chateau d’Antugnac Limoux White ‘Terres Amoureuses’, Chateau Fontarèche Corbières ‘Vieilles Vignes’ White, Domaine Fontarèche Syrah, Leeuwenkuil Vineyards ‘Family Reserve’ Red, Leeuwenkuil Vineyards ‘Family Reserve’ White, Tucumen Malbec, Viu Manent Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, Viu Manent Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, Viu Manent ‘Secreto’ Syrah and the Viu Manent ‘Secreto’ Viognier.
Loved this red that comes from the signature Uruguayan grape varietal, grown in the fertile soils of Garzón. The Tannat was an intense red and black fruit wine with lingering aftertaste, softness yet structure. Loved the silky tannins and supple mouthfeel of this fabulous red wine.
