Bodega Bouza was built in 1942 by Numa Pesquera following the model of a French chateaux. This family already managed
the concept of “fine wine”, front-line idea for the wines of Uruguay at that time. In 2002 we restored the building maintaining
the original idea. We now have a blend of traditional concepts and the necessary technology to ensure the best modern
vinification practices.
Our view of life tells us that state of the art technology is not enough if it doesn't go hand in hand with a gentle handling of
the fruit and conditions that allow minimal intervention in each and every process.
With these principles, and keeping the highest standard of hygiene, we have managed to meet our final goal: maximum
expression of the fruit in our wine and the adequate concentration for cellaring potential.
Our plots are in two traditional vine growing regions on the south of Uruguay, very close to the sea. Our vineyards are on
fertile, well drained soils, with differentiated soil layers and the presence of Calcium Carbonate. These characteristics make
them suitable for making concentrated wines with long cellaring potential.
Melilla soils are dark coloured, of medium texture and slightly acidic. In contrast, at Las Violetas the soils originate from
sedimentary or volcanic rocks, providing good rooting conditions for the vines.
The soils have a permanent varied grass and flower covering, forming an adequate habitat for insects, hence having a
varied population with ecological control.
Uruguay is in the southern hemisphere where seasons are defined. Our climate has great similarities with Bordeaux and the
proximity of the ocean moderates the summer temperatures, which rarely exceed 34°C.
These climatic changes demand that we work very hard on the vineyards but the rewards are great strong, individual and
complex wines, which vary from year to year.
TASTING NOTE
Intense ruby color with purple highlights. Aroma of ripe red fruits, plumbs and dried figs over chocolate notes. Soft attack, it
expands and moves nimbly in the mouth. Persistent and medium final.
WINEMAKING
Manual selection of the grapes berry by berry. Fermentation at 26ºC, 70% in steel tanks, 15% in concrete tanks and 15% in
French oak vats. 10 day maceration, with 2 pumping overs a day. Aging during 10 months in French and American oak
barrels.
