Amauta Torrontes

Torrontes is a wonderfully aromatic grape, producing wines with incredible floral and blossom characters. It’s known as Argentina’s primary white grape, because it flourishes in its high altitude vineyards.

The grapes for this wine are grown in the Finca El Retiro vineyards located 1,650 mts above sea level in Cafayate, Salta. The Cafayate area is widely known for its production of premium Torrontes. The grapes are picked by hand from old vines with an average age of 65 years.

Expect bright and appealing with lovely fresh tropical fruit and citrus blossom notes. This is exotic stuff with lovely Eastern nuances of rose-petal, lemon grass and ginger. The palate is rich and aromatic, fresh and beautifully structured, with lovely rich ripe fruit and crisp acidity. Pair with hot and sour Asian dishes, or ceviche.
