Delightfully aromatic with a floral nose with hints of grapefruit, pears and guava. The palate reveals ripe exotic and tropical flavours of melon and delicate floral notes, with vibrant acidity. This wine is exotic and fresh, and a real treat. Torrontes is a fabulous grape that has rapidly become synonymous with the white wines of Argentina. Pairs well with spicy Thai food, Chinese and seafood dishes.
Situated in the upper Mendoza valley where the river is halfway through its journey from the Andes mountains to the eastern plains, the vineyards of Luján de Cuyo sit at altitudes of around 1000 metres above sea level. Combining the intense sunlight experienced during the day and the cold night temperatures, the wines produced show deep concentration of flavour and structure. Current winemaker, Jose Ponce, is making some excellent wines; powerful and complex yet with balance.
Zingy, Refreshing, Dry White Wine
