Establecimentos Juanico

One of the biggest wineries in Uruguay, but still a family business, the Juanico winery is reckoned to be the most technically advanced in Uruguay, thanks to its investment in the business and its use of the latest technology.

At present the Juanico winery has a total planted area of 240 hectares, or 575 acres, of its own vineyards. Juanico uses a cultivation system that respects the environment by using the principles of organic farming, avoiding the use of chemicals, to achieve a natural balance in the ecosystem and thereby reduce human intervention.

The harvest is 100% picked by hand in the early hours of the morning to take advantage of this cool and fresh part of the day.

The selection of grapes is done at the moment of picking, rejecting those bunches and grapes that are not prime quality. In some cases this selection goes through a second process on the sorting table at the winery, just before the grapes pass through the destalking machine.

A high quality strategy, a strong industrial investment through which state of the art winemaking technologies are implemented, allow Juanico to develop unique wines.

    Deicas Single Vineyard Tannat Valle de los Manantiales 2015

    £18.99

    From Jancis Robinson's review:

    'Single vineyard in the Garzón subregion. 15% barrel aged but not new.

    Inky black core and dark purple rim. Spicy dark wild berries. Very intense but not over-sweet on the nose. Just slightly floral. Lightly and nicely dusty. Super-dry finesse and paper-fine but compact tannins. Dark and savoury but fluid. Lovely texture. Fresh and long and very elegant. Beautiful balance.'

    Deicas Single Vineyard Tannat Domaine Castelar 2015

    £18.99

    From Jancis Robinson (18+ points)

    'Single vineyard in the Progreso subregion. 25% barrel aged. Clay-limestone soils. 


    Black core, narrow rim. Riper than the Mar de Piedras 2015 with a touch of fig. Riper fruit aroma but the tannins give a beautifully dry freshness in line with the acidity. A little warmer and less expressive on the palate. Juicy and salty. Very layered and difficult to describe. Powerful and for now closed on the palate. Long and too young to approach just yet but so intense even after the more fruit-forward aroma.'
