Winemaker's Notes:

Amado Sur is a delicate yellow wine with refined green tones. A complex, floral bouquet opens with notes of fresh cut roses folded with jasmine and a touch of citrus. On the palate, the wine is refreshing yet lush with flavors of white peach, apricot and mild orange peel. Crisp acidity frames the persistent finish.

The opulent fruit of Torront├ęs mixed with the floral notes of Viogner and the round, lush flavors of Chardonnay, blend together elegantly. Here, in Mendoza, these grapes develop what could only be described as - a love of the south - or Amado Sur.

Lively yet refined, this wine pairs well with fresh salad, bold white meat, seafood and spicy Thai or Indian dishes.

About Trivento:

Our winery is named after the three winds that sweep through our vineyards, giving our grapes their unique character.

The icy Polar wind invades the vineyard in winter. Cold forces the sap deep within the vines. Pruning begins to encourage renewed growth.

The Zonda wind rushes down off the Andes from the West. Racing across open furrows, its warmth envelops each plant rousing the dormant sap to supply new, spring growth.

The third wind, the Sudestada, draws in from the East, fresh yet humid, in summer. It gives our grapes respite from the searing sun and eases berry ripening.
