By leaving Torrontes out on the vine longer than normal to concentrate, Don David have made a beautiful sweet wine. It shows butterscotch, jasmin, grapefruit, floral notes and much more. The mouthfeel is velvety and offers liquorice, raisins and age has added some savoury/nutty notes. A great wine to drink over the next few years, it will go with Roquefort, fresh fruits nothing at all.
French immigrants David and Salvador Michel founded the winery in 1892. Back then it gained a reputation for quality wine making which it holds to this day. The Don David label pays homage to the winery’s founder, Don David Michel. The wines embody the lovely perfume and elegance of Salta.
This province lays claim to the highest vineyard in the world. Big diurnal temperature variations means these wines are elegant and high in acid. Great for Torrontés but the reds do very well if you like lots of structure.
DNA testing says this white grape (well there are three distinct Torrontés clones) is related to the Muscat family but is a variety in its own right. Fragrant, textural and a hint neutral in the best possible way. Makes a refreshing drink that is versatile for food matching.
