Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Composition: 100% Torrontés Vineyard Locations: Cafayate (Salta Province) Avg. Vineyard Elev.: 5,775 feet Avg. Age of Vines: 28 years Rootstock: Ungrafted Harvest Method: Hand-harvested Oak Regimen: None Fining/ Filtration: None/Light filtration Alcohol: 13.5% pH: 3.5 T.A. 6.1 Tasting Notes/Food Pairing Suggestions Enticing aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, white pear, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has beautiful structure and acidity similar to Sauvignon Blanc along with enticing fruit flavors that keep you coming back for another sip and plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry, this wine has to be tasted to be believed. Best enjoyed in its youth either by itself, or as a wonderful partner with smoked meats, mild to medium-strong cheeses, and seafood (especially crab!). Keep one in the fridge at all times!
