The classic Argentine white wine, Torrontés delivers an intriguing new option in a white wine and is appealingly aromatic, with aromas of white flowers, ripe stone fruit and hints of mineral.
Argentina’s only native grape, Torrontés thrives in our soaring vineyards at 5,000 to 10,000 feet in elevation, developing incredible floral aromas, bright fruit notes and refreshing acidity. Our Torrontés is grown in Salta in the far northwestern region of Argentina. In the shadow of the Andes at higher altitudes than Mendoza and much closer to the equator, Salta is one of the most extreme winegrowing regions in the world. Blazing hot summer days can reach daytime temperatures of 100 degrees of intense sunlight, plunging to as low as 55 degrees at night as the heat evaporates into the thin air. It’s a dramatic shift that allows grapes to mature and accumulate rich, bold flavors during the day and preserve beautiful acidity and structure at night.
A delightful expression of the region, the Alamos Torrontes is crisp and extraordinarily fragrant (another benefit of our high-elevation vineyards), filled with striking floral aromas of orange and jasmine blossom. On the palate, vibrant notes of peach, ripe pineapple and fresh herbs lead to a refreshing zing of acidity at the finish.
