Description

Familia Deicas is a family-run winery, located in southern Uruguay, with the second and third generations now running the business.
Their Preludio Barrel Select was first made in 1992 to prove Uruguay had the potential for making world-class, ageworthy wines and is now one of the most renowned cuvées coming out of the country. Hand-harvested grapes undergo rigorous selection and a long maceration before the wine is left to age in barrel for up to 30 months in the winery's underground cellars. Every 6 months a careful selection of barrels takes place to ensure only the very best wines are used for the final blend. This attention to detail results in a consistently brilliant and complex wine. Wonderfully concentrated and intense with a deep dark fruit profile of dried figs, ripe fruits of the forest and sweet spice. The finish is long and evolving with a savoury and herbal complexity framed by ripe, round tannins.
A truly world class wine that will age gracefully for another 5+ years.
Bottled unfiltered, so recommended to decant 30 minutes before serving.
