An elegant wine with a bright greenish-gold color typical of the variety. The nose impresses with a delicious and varied aromatic expression featuring the variety’s classic and characteristic citrus fruits, orange peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruits that intermingle with a fresh and delicate floral note. The palate reveals spectacular acidity that pairs with its interesting aromatic profile and tropical flavors to make this a fresh remarkably persistent wine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Torrontés is produced in Cafayate (Salta) from vines planted at 2,000 meters altitude. It has the classical perfumed nose with aromas of white flowers and echoes of Moscatel pulp, quite subtle and elegant. The palate shows some austerity, clean flavors, good acidity and some citric flavors. 2016 seems like a very good year for Torrontés in Salta. 66,000 bottles produced.

Wine EnthusiastTropical-fruit aromas of lychee and passion fruit come with a hint of lanolin. This wine feels citrusy, with fresh passion fruit and tangerine flavors that are not oily or gritty on the finish.
