Torrontes Muscat

AVAILABLE JANUARY 2021

TORRONTES MUSCAT

MENDOZA, ARGENTINA
Torrontes and Muscat, two aromatic whites, share many similarities making them ideal blending partners. Expect floral aromas, fresh peach and citrus flavours and bright acidity. Torrontes, Argentina’s signature white wine grape, lends notes of rose petal, geranium and peach, complemented by Muscat’s honeysuckle, mandarin orange, and stone fruit flavour
MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

At the foot of the Andes and an average of 900m above sea level, Mendoza boasts some of the highest vineyards in the world and Torrontes grows particularly well as this elevation. The hot, semi-arid climate is tempered by cool mountain nights, helping the varietal to retain acidity. Dry, rocky soils mean the vines have to work harder for nutrients thereby producing smaller, more concentrated grapes.
