Winemaker Notes

With delicate floral aromas, this wine has fresh, lively flavors that are clean, energizing and easy to drink.

This wine pairs wonderfully with grilled fish, fresh shellfish and focaccia topped with tapenade.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The unoaked 2017 Estate Torrontés was produced with grapes from old vines in Cafayate in Salta at 2,300 meters in altitude, harvested at three different points in time and ripeness, trying to keep a constant character. The grapes were pressed in Cafayate, then the must was transported in refrigerated trucks to Mendoza, where it fermented in stainless steel. It's bottled without malolactic and drier than in previous years. For Patrick d'Aulan, old vines make more of a difference for whites than for reds. This could remind you of a dry Muscat from Alsace. They have worked in this new style of Torrontés since 2000, moving away from the heavier, more oxidative style of yesteryear. And they went for something fresher, perhaps a little too aromatic, which they have reduced in the last two or three years, with more balance and a subtler nose. There is a nice bitter twist on the finish. A benchmark Torrontés. 50,697 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2017.

TA 90
Tim Atkin

The only wine in the Alta Vista range that comes from outside Mendoza, this Cafayate Torrontés is stylish and aromatic, with none of the bitterness or oiliness that can mar the variety. Lime and blossom notes with refreshing acidity. 2018-20. Alcohol: 13%

Alta Vista Winery Video
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.

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

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 on the porch.
