Grape VarietySemillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
StyleAromatic & Zesty
A top-notch white blend to blow your socks off. Each varietal in the blend Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrentes are separately barrel femermented then blended and rested in the same barrels for a further four months. The oak is delicate, the fruit is complex and explosive, with delicious acidity.
"The lychee and perfumed floral notes of the Torrontés is powerful, but there's a flinty character too that is very attractive, with the palate showing delightful fruit intensity and a huge blast of grapefruit. Delicious acidity and intensity, long and shimmering salty acidity."
92 / 100 Tom Cannavan's WinePages.Com, February 2016 (2015 vintage)
"A mould-breaking, low alcohol cuvée of Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, all from the Uco Valley and two thirds fermented in concrete eggs. Grapefruit, gooseberry and struck match notes are complemented by a hint of oak on the Torrontés. One of the country's best whites in year one."
