An interesting wine from a country not usually seen in the wine world (Uruguay) and a grape not usually tasted (Albarino). Light golden in color with a slight copper hue. The nose is all about minerality with some crushed shells, iron, diesel and sea air. On the palate, this has a slightly oily texture. Again, there isn't much fruit but plenty of minerality. It is refreshing with good acidity. It is a nice light wine that will make a good summer sipper with some soft cheeses on the back patio. Drink over the next year.
This is a Tannat based dessert wine from Uruguay. Very interesting. Dark brown in color. The nose is like a chocolate flavored Tootsie-Pop. Sweet and chocolaty. The palate is slightly viscous and very chocolaty. Sweet but just a bit. Not cloying. A little goes a long way, but a very fun wine.
