More about this wine from Montevideo, Uruguay
Since 1956, the Traversa family has a legacy of three generations nurturing their vineyards in Montevideo. Using eco-friendly yet advanced methods, their wines reflect the terroir of the heartland of Uruguay’s wine-growing regions. Terroir is just a fancy wine word meaning the wine develops the taste of a specific place.

These luscious Cab Franc grapes are picked by hand in the vineyards that are nestled against Uruguay's beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The juice is young and vibrant with an herbaceous nose that is like opening a canister of succulent, dried black cherries. The palate is bright and lip-smacking with tastes of plum, herbs, and a touch of salty black olives.

How to drink it

While...

It's chilly but not too chilly, which means it's finally time to fire up that little chiminea you got 2-day shipping on. You pour a glass and enjoy a cozy toast to yourself for ordering this charming source of warmth off Amazon.
