    Winemaker Notes

    The emblematic white wine of Argentina, the 2012 Recuerdo Torrontés is cultivated in the Argentine province of La Rioja. The quality of this region results in extremely aromatic varieties. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its fruit intensity and lively aromatics. Bright, fresh, and full of summer, Torrontés has a clean straw color with aromatic points of lemon spritz, citrus, and tart white flowers. The mouth is filled with tropical fruit, fresh with mineral notes and clean essences. It is streamlined with fresh orange zest that rounds out with acidity and ripe pears that linger into a lush finish.

    The story begins in Mendoza, Argentina, in a rock-strewn vineyard encircled by majestic weeping willow trees. With a perfect view of the Andes Mountains, we frequently gather here to delight in a mid-day or evening asado. After a long meal in the vineyard, accompanied by plenty of wine (and good conversation, of course), we started to discuss a "Northern Hemisphere (38° North) meets Southern Hemisphere (32° South)" winemaking partnership. After a visit to The Vines of Mendoza by Paul Leary, a Private Vineyard Estate Owner (PVE) and principal at Blackbird Vineyards in Napa Valley, Recuerdo Wines was born.

    Recuerdo means "memory" or "memento" in Spanish. As such, the Recuerdo winemaking team of Santiago Achaval and Pablo Martorell passionately believes that each bottle of Recuerdo should not only represent Argentina's native terroir but also serve as a memory of each and every harvest.

    Enthusiasts can find Recuerdo Wines at specialty wine shops, enjoy them at modern fine dining establishments, and taste them at Ma(i)sonry: the leading art, design and wine gallery in the Napa Valley.

    As Argentina’s oldest wine-producing province, La Rioja’s focus is on the white variety, Torrontés Riojano. Here the large cooperative, La Riojana, makes several styles: an aromatic dry one, a late harvest, and a sparkling version.

    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.
