Uruguay Tannat & Albarino

Tannat grape is now known as the healthiest red wine in the world, due to the seeds and skins having antioxidants, polyphenols, and resveratrol. If you love White wine, then you must taste Uruguayan Albarino, which is a delicious wine with bags of fruit. Albarino is originally from the northwest of Spain in Galicia, which produces highly opulent wines with aromas of stone fruits like apricots and peaches similar to Viognier and Gewürztraminer. Recommended Wine Tours in Uruguay are best in Montevideo, where you can have a Montevideo Wine Tasting sponsored by Wines of Uruguay, who promote Uruguay Wine Tours. Bodega Bouza was the first winery to plant Albarino in South America. Uruguay Tannat goes best with grass-fed meats including rack of lamb, whereas Albarino pairs well with salads or seafood. Recommended Wine Tours in Uruguay focus on Bodega Garzón, Bodega Bouza, Juanico, Pizzorno, Pisano & Carrau. Uruguay wine is on the up and the Tannat grape is getting lots of attention worldwide.

The line named in his honor, Don Melchor, is an outstanding and renowned Cabernet Sauvignon.

Viu Manent, located in the Colchagua Valley, has been running for 80 years and produces a small range of stylish wines. El Incidente named after an eventful hot-air balloon trip taken by one of the family members is a blend of Carmenère, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Meanwhile, the blends that make up their ‘Secreto’ range are, as the name suggests, a carefully guarded secret. Visits to their winery include an atmospheric trip around the vineyards in a horse-drawn carriage, along with food and wine tasting.
The Casablanca Valley was devastated by an earthquake in 2010. The region’s burgeoning wine scene was badly affected, but it has bounced back in style and Loma Larga is one of the wineries leading the push towards international fame. It is a relatively new operation, with its first wines produced in 2004, yet it won Wine and Spirits’ 2011 ‘Winery of the Year’ prize. Try its celebrated 2010 Cabernet Franc, or an earlier specimen if you can get your hands on it. Best Chile Tours can take on a Wine Tasting holiday!
