Great wines are produced in unique places. Alta Vista’s Torrontes vineyards are situated in the best terroirs of Salta, at 5,400 feet above sea level. Each vineyard receives expertise that is 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 in temperature-controlled stainless steel tank and without malolactic fermentation to preserve the grape’s vibrant aromas and fresh acidity. The wine is aged on the lees in steel tank.

Harvest Note
In Cafayate, conditions were quite similar to Mendoza. After heavy rains began the growing season in January, the year saw a dry, cold and late vintage, with absolutely no rot. Picking was done in several passes to obtain fruit with diverse aromatics. Of the past few years, 2013 is the finest vintage for whites.
Tasting Note
With a bright yellow color and delicate floral aromas of white fruit, this Premium Torrontés excites your senses due to its freshness and liveliness.
Food Pairing
This wine pairs wonderfully with grilled fish, fresh shellfish and focaccia topped with tapenade.
