Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Alamos Torrontes has a floral bouquet with expressive aromas of orange and jasmine blossoms, balanced by citrus and peach flavors. This bright, refreshing white wine has well-structured acidity and a crisp finish.

Enjoy as an aperitif or with spicy food, traditional seafood or tangy cheeses.

About Alamos:

From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.
