La Yunta 2017 Torrontes
About the Wine
The Torrontés grape was first brought to Argentina in the late 1800's by Spanish immigrants. While most Argentine Torrontés is produced in La Salta, we prefer it from La Rioja. The region's more moderate climate produces a Torrontés that is much more "focused" on the palate and considerably drier than most. Careful vineyard management and native yeast fermentation make this Torrontés with Terroir!
Vintage: 2017 | Wine Type: White Wine
Notably aromatic of green melon and white peach. It has balanced citrus flavor with a touch of French oak to provide a crisp yet lingering finish. Wonderful as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to seafood or poultry.
"A restrained kind of Torrontes, closer to a Riesling than a Muscat, with citric aromas and flavors. It has an herbaceous side, and is quite focused and fresh, with a subtle floral side and an off-dry finish. An impressive Torrontes at a great price." - Wine Advocate
