Grown some 1,800 metres above sea level, this perennially popular Torrontés promises evocations of white flowers, pear, orange and passion fruit. Lightly chill and sip with seared scallops basted in herbed butter.
91 Points - "The 2017 Torrontés Serie A from Salta was cropped from a dry year that was slightly cooler than 2016 (remember, this is Salta, not Mendoza). The grapes come from vines planted at 1,800 to 2,000 meters in altitude. The juice, partly from direct pressing and partly with five hours of maceration, fermented at low temperature with selected yeasts, and the wine was bottled unoaked. It's floral, citrusy and spicy, with varietal aromas and an herbal touch of oregano. It's fresh and balanced, with a dry finish. This is one for the dining table. The wine was kept with the lees until it was bottled in December 2017. 80,000 bottles produced." - Wine Advocate (June 2018)
