Tasting notes - A refreshing, fragrant wine, the colour of yellow topaz. This Torrontés bursts with tropical aromas of pineapple, peach and orange blossom.

The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century
old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks; a
significant aspect in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is
taken in crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and
microclimates. Mendoza and Cafayate are two of the best grape growing regions in
Argentina and they wanted to showcase both. Led by head winemaker Valeria
Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their
gravity fed winery in Cafayate honours their commitment to sustainable practices.
Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are
USDA certified organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear
water and nutrient rich soil and their award winning wines are produced with
wisdom, precision and love.
Piattelli Torrontés comes from the Torrontés Riojano grape, a crisp and complex
grape considered the best of the sub-varietals. Grown at an elevation of 1,795
metres, the extreme thermal amplitudes concentrate the grape sugars while
retaining balancing acidity and produces grapes bursting with flavour. Piattelli
Torrontés is an elegant rendition of this varietal showcasing the freshness and floral
qualities for which this wine is well known.
The grapes were crushed gently in the gravity flow winery and then fermented at
13°C, maintaining the purity of the fruit flavours throughout. 20% of the wine was then
aged for two months in small, first-use French oak barrels. After blending the wine
was then clarified, bottled and aged for a further four months.

This versatile wine works in harmony with intense, spicy flavours found in Japanese,
Thai or Chinese cuisine. The traditional pairing is with hot meat empanadas.
