Uruguay, the new world’s wine jewel

Uruguay, the new world’s wine jewel

Hey wine lovers! We hope this weekend brought on your table great wines so that you enjoyed them and are ready to discover now more on this essence of life.

As you remember, last week, we were focusing on Uruguay, an emerging but amazing wine producing country. Back then we introduced you to the impressive red wines of this region that were compared by Andreas Larsson in their style with the European wines.

Well, we think you should know that in this country with more than 200 wineries run by forth and even fifth generation winemakers not only the red wines are of a high quality but also the white ones.

Still looking for a professional point of view? Here is what World’s Best Sommelier, Andreas Larsson says about the white Uruguayan wines after having recently blindtasted them right in Montevideo: The white wines showed resemblance to western France from the Loire to the South West. Most of the unoaked examples were pleasing in their aromatic and fresh styles, even if many were on the lighter side.”

We are now happy to propose you a ranking of those beautiful wines from Uruguay were the “less forgiving climate bring the wines closer to Europe in terms of vintage variation, ripeness and freshness”.

Best score: 93 Points
Average score: 87,9 Points
