This winery is situated in the La Consulta sub-region of Mendoza, a terroir that seems to favour whites. A long history of production and contracts with outstanding local growers means the grapes used to make these wines are pristine. They source the fruit for this wine from an equally impressive site in Cafayate Salta. This Torrontes is intense and a brilliant yellow colour showing white flowers and tropical fruits. It is fruity, fresh, and harmonious, with a lingering, persistent finish.
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
Torrontés – 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.
