Valles Torrontes 2021
This Torrontés, cultivated in the Salta valleys of Argentina, is a fragrant, crisp and zingy white wine with flavours of lychee, orange peel and gentle spices.
The Andes Valleys are the home to wines of elegance and character. Our Valles wines are made with grapes grown in high altitude vineyards along the foothills of the Andes Mountains range.
From the winemaking point of view, this was a wonderful harvest, with outstanding health and quality contributed by the grapes. The ripeness obtained was that expected in each region, vineyard and plot, and it allowed us to harvest each one at its optimum moment. Because of these conditions, we obtained balanced wines with distinct identities, capable of transparently revealing our interpretation of the year and their sense of place. Whites present very good acidity and boast a broad aromatic palette including fruits, herbs and flowers. Reds, on the other hand, offer great aromatic complexity expressed in various facets, depending on the area and the variety. Some are reminiscent of fruit, others, of herbs and spices. On the palate, juiciness and texture are the defining traits of 2021 wines
