This Estate is the love child of Paula Pivel & Alvaro Lorenzo who purchased 20 hectares of land near the coastal resort of Punta del Este in South-East Uruguay. Planting just 8 hectares under vine, the couple only started releasing wine for general sale in 2007.

50% Tannat, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, this wine is dark (as you would expect!). Powerful aromas of olive tapenade, black cherry, tarry berry fruits & dried red fruits lead to a rich but remarkably balanced palate that is deeply fruited but still very fresh. The coastal influence on the vineyards is clear here and really does make this a most enjoyable drop. Pair with grilled meats or even better a delicious Chivito!
