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 care.
Vineyard
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.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Note
A fragrant, fruity example of the Torrontés variety from Argentina. Bright and fruity with
tropical fruit flavours, this is elegant and beautifully balanced with a refreshing finish.
