Producer Note
Matias Riccitelli is the son of renowned winemaker Jorge Riccitelli. Having worked at
some of the most prestigious wineries in Argentina and several vintages around the
world, Matias used his experience, knowledge and passion and set up his own
winery in 2009. His vineyards cover 50 hectares located in three selected sites within
the premium growing region of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. This is a young and
dynamic project in which Matias is seeking to express the full potential of Argentine
terroir.


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


Winemaking
The grapes were meticulously sorted by hand prior to 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
characters of the Torrontés grape.


Tasting Note
Torrontés is Argentina's signature white grape; this crisp and refreshing Torrontés is a
classic example. The nose has fresh and inviting aromas of rose, white peach and
citrus. On the palate it is refreshing and full of flavour.
