  • Tasting notes

    Argentina's Torrontés grape produces a highly-aromatic dry white wine with dazzling aromas of honeysuckle, orange blossoms, lavender, geranium and rose petals. On the palate, these wines are crisp with bright, and refreshing citrus and tropical fruit notes along with great minerality. Some boast a lingering, spicy finish.

  • Viticultural notes

    An exceptional vintage, intense sunlight and lack of rainfall prevented cryptogamic diseases. There was some rainfall at the beginning of harvest, but it remained dry during February and March with good thermal amplitude, which allowed for gradual ripening until optimum levels were achieved. Catena vineyard, planted on the Eastern slope, allowed for optimal aeration and sunlight exposure.
