Premium Torrontés 2011

Region: Argentina / Mendoza
Grapes: 100% Torrontés

Great wines are made from great wine growing places. These Torrontes vineyards are among the the best terroirs of Salta, at 5,400 feet elevation. Each vineyard receives precise work tailored to each grape variety via specific treatments called Terroir Management®. The wine is made from destemmed grapes that are gently pressed to avoid harsh phenolics and vinified without malolactic fermentation to preserve the grape’s vibrant aromas and fresh acidity. The wine is aged for 3 months on the lees in steel tank and 3 months in bottle.

harvest note

Overall, 2011 was an unusual vintage, with frost during the spring and heavy rainfall in February, followed by an “Indian summer,” but the arrival of temperate conditions helped the Chardonnay grapes attain perfect maturity.

tasting note

With delicate floral aromas, this wine has fresh, lively flavors that are clean, energizing and easy to drink.

food pairing

This wine pairs wonderfully with grilled fish, fresh shellfish and focaccia topped with tapenade.
