Durigutti 2016 Viognier
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
- Brothers Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are two of Argentina’s most sought after consulting enologists.
- Hector first became known for his work alongside Alberto Antonini as one of the co-founders of Altos Las Hormigas, the forward thinking project that placed Argentine Malbec on the international map in the late nineties.
- Pablo comes with his own star studded resume which includes a stint at Catena and connections with more old-vine landowners than anyone else in the region.
ABOUT THE WINE
- This wine is the result of combined styles of two Argentine winemakers, Hector and Pablo Durigutti. The treatment of this wine was minimal in order to preserve the natural intensity of the fruit.
