Description

Susana became the first female enologist in Argentina after graduating with honors from Don Bosco University in Mendoza in 1981. Due to the male-dominated industry in Mendoza, her first job took her north to Salta where she changed Argentine wine history with her first vintage of premium Torrontés. For premium wine production, Susana chooses concrete eggs for fermenting vessels. The egg’s porous concrete breathes like oak yet allows the wine to develop as if it were made in stainless steel. The resulting wine has a pure expression of fruit with a richer, more complex mouthfeel.

TASTING NOTES

This wine is composed of similar parts of Semillón, Torrontés and Sauvignon Blanc from Altamira. It’s very aromatic with floral and citric notes intermixed with hints of white fruit, coming through as a fresh, subtle blend. It matured for 4 months in French oak barrels, 60% first use and 40% second use.

FOOD PAIRING

A versatile blend, it pairs really well with many foods – salads, chicken, seafood risotto, white fish, sashimi, prawns and shellfish.
