Uruguay Wine - Prelude or Preludia?
I've had a couple customers mention a wine (I think I white wine) from Uruguay called either Prelude or Preludia. Does this ring any bells with anyone?
Here are the wines I know and like from Uruguay:
Eolo, Tannat/Ruby Cab, Vinedo De los Vientos,
Tannat, Vinedo De los Vientos
Gewurztraminer/Chardonnay, Vinedo De los Vientos
Viognier, Don Pasual Reserva
Pinot Noir, Don Pascual Reserva
I tried some in Feb this year, and it is truly fantastic. It won Vinitaly’sGrand
GoldMedal in 1996, the first time in the history of Vinitaly that a wine that was
not Italian or French had won a Grand Gold Medal. You can see more looking at
Juanico only imports about 7000 cases to US and not much of this is the Preludio - whose full name is Establecimiento Juanicó Familia Deicas Preludio. But some is imported out of s-selections in Miami. You can contact them for your local distributor at www.s-selections.com.
As for the Preludio, we're fans and reviewed the wine in detail here:
