Winemaker Notes

Has the expressive and delicate aromas typical of Torrontés, reminiscent of white roses, grapefruit and pears. On the palate are fresh and intense grapefruit flavors, with volume and a mineral-flinty character, along with balanced acidity.

Ideal as an aperitif, and with fish, Japanese or Thai food.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 91
Decanter
From the heights of Cafayate, this is one of the purest and most refreshing examples of Torrontes available in the UK. Look at its hints of lemons and flowers and how its vibrant acidity plays around with the soft, light and perfectly balanced body. Mineral tones add an unexpected complexity.

Alta Vista Estate Vineyards Winery Image
Founded in 1997 and owned by the d'Aulan family, former owners of the Piper-Heidsieck Champagne house, Alta Vista is guided by the philosophy of expressing the best terroirs of Argentina and highlighting the typical Argentine varieties: Malbec and Torrontes. The winemaking team's system of terroir management led Alta Vista to produce the very first single-vineyard Malbecs in Argentina. Alta Vista has gained the respect of other wine professionals both in Argentina and in other wine-producing countries on the basis of the quality of its wines, which have been internationally classified as being among Argentina's finest.

Home to some of Argentina’s best Torrontes, the Cafayate Valley’s rugged, high-altitude vineyards are part of the Calchaquies Valley in northwestern Argentina. Here, this Argentine white variety is able to achieve optimal ripeness while maintaining a higher than average acidity; its wines are typically full-bodied, dry to off-dry and alluringly aromatic.

In the Cafayate Valley, summers are warm and while most rainfall happens in these months, it isn’t enough to supply to the vineyards with enough water for the entire year. Snowmelt provides a fresh water source for irrigation in these arid and extreme conditionss.

Unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant, Torrontés is regarded as the signature white grape of Argentina. In many ways it bears a striking resemblance to Muscat (and in fact is an offspring of Muscat of Alexandria). Sommelier Secret-If you’re in search of a new summer sipper, look no further than Torrontés. These wines are always inexpensive, delightfully refreshing and are best enjoyed in the sunny outdoors at a picnic, poolside or as a porch sipper.
