This 100% Torrontes shows us just how well-made Torrontes can be--and it's no wonder since it is made by famed longtime Torrontes expert Jose Luis Mounier. only 10,500 bottles are produced, and it comes from a mere 6 hectares of 37-year old vines at an incredible 6,200 feet above sea level, in the Calchaqui Valley of Salta. It is 100% stainless steel fermented, the way Torrontes should be, and the result is stunning. Its color is a delicate clear yellow, and on the nose it gives all the typical aromas: lychee, grapefruit, tropical fruits and rose petals. The palate is where it surprises--with a burst of acidity seldom found in its fellow Torrontes.
