Valle de la Puerta Torrontés Famatina Valley la Puerta 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Production: Cold settling: After pressing the fruit the resulting juice is cooled and pumped to a holding tank for "cold settling". The chilled juice is held at a temperature too low for fermentation to occur so that the grape solids can settle out and the fermentation proceed on "clean" juice. Fermentation: The juice is then "seeded" with a cultured yeast and slowly fermented under temperature controlled conditions in the vats for up to a month. The juice has evolved into wine and only clarification, cold stabilization and filtration is required before it can be bottled.


Tasting Notes:

Powerful honeysuckle and other floral aromas are characteristic of this unique wine, the Torrontes grapes are grown almost exclusively in Argentina. It has an elegant pale yellow color with hints of green, while on the palate crisp acidity provides a cleanliness and platform for the citrus flavours. Finishes clean and refreshing, with more floral hints.
