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.
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.
From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful north western Argentinian mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area, with its pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes, is that it produces grapes bursting with flavour, making this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier grape growing regions in the world.
The grapes were gently destemmed and pressed. The free-run juice was cold static clarified for 14 to 24 hours at 8°C. The must was separated from the lees, leaving the freshest juice. This was vinified with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 12 to 16°C. Once fermentation was complete the wine was transferred to another tank to rest until bottling. This wine was made in an unoaked style to preserve the purity of the Torrontés variety.
A fragrant, fruity example of the Torrontés variety from Argentina. Bright and fruity with lychees and rose petals combined with tropical fruit flavours, this is elegant and beautifully balanced with a refreshing finish.
A refreshing aperitif, or the perfect accompaniment to lighter Indian cuisine, gently spiced Asian cuisine or grilled white fish.
