  • Torrontes is Argentina's signature white grape; this crisp and refreshing Torrontes is a classic example. The nose has fresh and inviting rose, white peach, and citrus aromas. On the palate, it is refreshing and full of flavour. Notes of green apple complemented by fresh and flavoured floral roses and spicy mango. Matias Riccitelli is the son of renowned winemaker Jorge Riccitelli. Having worked at some of Argentina's most prestigious wineries and several vintages worldwide, Matias used his experience, knowledge and passion and set up his winery in 2009. His vineyards cover 50 hectares in three selected sites within the premium growing region of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. This is a young and dynamic project in which Matias seeks to express Argentine terroir's full potential. 

The grapes were meticulously sorted by hand before 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 characteristics of the Torrontes grape.

Winery

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 meters above sea level and benefit from large diurnal temperature variations which result in a longer growing season. The heat assists in 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 in arbors. The sandy loam soils offer the vines good drainage.
