Although Malbec and Mendoza are the best known names in Argentine winemaking, Torrontés is taking centre stage a few hundred miles to the northwest, in the Cafayate region of Salta. It is believed that varietal was brought to the country by Spanish Jesuits in the 18th century. Torrontés is found in the world’s highest vineyards, resting at 5,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level in Argentina. The high altitude growing conditions translate beautifully to bright floral aromas and delightfully crisp acidity in the wine.
Brilliant water like colour with greenish tinged edges. Intense lime zest and Granny Smith apple scents infused with fresh herbs leap from the glass followed by some lychee and saline mineral like notes. Scrumptious lime, green apple and lychee flavours engulf the mouth with infusions of fresh herbs and flinty mineral characters adding further nuance. Excellent concentration with a dry finish and crunchy acidity leading into a long zesty aftertaste.
