Producer Note

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; significant 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. 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.

Vintage

2017 was an excellent vintage in Salta. The weather throughout the growing season was warm and dry, with no spring frosts. The temperatures were slightly cooler towards the end of the summer, but then they rose just before harvest ensuring the berries reached optimal maturity. The grapes were harvested in perfect health and are bursting with flavour.

Vineyard

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.

Winemaking

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.

Tasting Note

A refreshing, fragrant wine, the colour of yellow topaz. This Torrontés bursts with tropical aromas of pineapple, peach and orange blossom. Aromatic notes resonate on the palate, with fresh apricot and lychee and a hint of orange zest. Well balanced and crisp with a medium citrus finish.

Serving Suggestion

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.
