Riccitelli The Apple doesnt fall far. Torrontes
Tasting notes - Torrontés is Argentina's signature white grape; this crisp and refreshing Torrontés is a classic example. The nose has fresh and inviting aromas of rose, white peach and citrus. On the palate it is refreshing and full of flavour.
Torrontes has quickly risen to become Argentina's signature white-wine grape, and one of the most widely grown
The grapes are grown in Tupungato, a renowned high altitude wine district in the
north of the Uco Valley. Tupungato is the northernmost sub-region of the Uco Valley
in Mendoza, where the climate offers excellent conditions for premium viticulture. The
vines are planted at 1,000 metres above sea level and benefit from large diurnal
temperature variations which result in a longer growing season. The heat assists the
promotion of sugar levels in the ripening grapes, while the coolness of the night
retains acidity levels, achieving healthy and balanced berries. The 40 year old vines
are planted at a density of 12,000 vines per hectare and are trained on arbours. The
sandy loam soils offer the vines good drainage.
The grapes were meticulously sorted by hand prior to vinification, to ensure the best
fruit was selected. The fruit was macerated for 48 hours before being 100% fermented
in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts. Once fermentation was complete, the wine
was aged for six months in concrete vats to retain the freshness and the varietal
characters of the Torrontés grape.
