Tasting Notes

Torrontes is the grape, here sourced from the high altitude Cafayate region in Argentina.

The relatively cooler climate means the grapes ripen slowly, preserving fruit flavours.

Which is good news, as they are lovely - lychees and rose petal aromas, together with tropical fruit flavours.

A great one to match with lighter indian dishes.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2011 vintage, Fiona Beckett said: "…like fashionable Albarino, Torrontes has become quite pricey, though the Finest Torrontes is currently on offer and is a good wine for a Chinese or Indian take-away."

Fiona Beckett - The Guardian Magazine 05/10/2013

Background

History

From the very beginning The Wines of Catena set out to discover the best places to plant vineyards in Mendoza, identifying the best microclimates for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Malbec. In addition, new techniques of cluster thinning and harvest practices were implemented to further increase concentration. This research program also led to the conclusion that the poor soils near the Andes, were actually ideal for quality viticulture

Regional info

Torrontés is taking center stage a few hundred miles to the northwest, in the Cafayate region of Salta. It is believed that Argentina’s flagship white varietal was brought to the country by Spanish Jesuits in the 18th century. Torrontés is found in the world’s highest vineyards, resting at 5,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level in Argentina. The high altitude growing conditions translate beautifully to bright floral aromas and delightfully crisp acidity in our Tesco Finest Torrontés wine.
