SALTA'S EMBLEMATIC INSIGNIA
Of unknown origin, Argentina is one of the few countries that produce this type of grape and, in the North, Cafayate has the most suitable microclimate for its production thanks to its height, its dry weather and its temperature amplitude.
This grape variety makes highly scented but also extremely dry wines. When young, they look yellowish-green with golden dyes. As they get older, their colour becomes more intense, with vibrant reflections.
In the nose, they evoke orange flowers, azahares, roses, jazmin, lilacs or violets and tropical fruits such as guayaba, peaches and pineapple. Also, more mature notes such as orange skin, walnuts, honey, chamomile and clove can be found. The balance between the acidity and the fruit flavours make this dry wine taste almost like a sweet one.
“TORRONTÉS has been touted as the hottest thing to arrive from Argentina since the tango. Or at least since malbec.”
