    Winemaker Notes

    Bright yellow color. Deep floral aromas of roses, orange blossoms and jasmine. This wine has a fresh mouth-feel with some mineral notes.

    Tomero, Argentina
    Image of winery
    Tomero wines are traditional Argentine varietals with classic varietal character that is always true to their terroir. Most Tomero wines are sourced from high-elevation vineyards in Valle de Uco, a sub-appellation of Mendoza nestled against the base of the Andes.

    The Valle de Uco is located 130km southeast from the city of Mendoza. Mr. Antonio Pulenta came upon these lands more than 30 years ago and began the planting of vineyards in what today is known as Finca los Alamos. It is undoubtedly a vineyard of inestimable value due to its location, its old age and the quality of its grapes. It is made up of 400 hectares of trellised vines with bilateral spurred cordon, which produce varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Viognier, and originate the Tomero Wines.

    The Tomero becomes a part of the vineyard scenario in 1833 and his presence there continues to this day. His job is the distribution of irrigation water in those vineyards or crop fields which, by law, are entitled to use the river water. The Tomero is hired by the landowners, and his job is to open and close the "Tome de Agua" (Water Intake Channel) of each estate. Today, the Tomero is the symbol of an irrigation system developed more than 100 years ago, which has enabled the development of vine-growing regions in Mendoza.

    Argentina

    View all wine

    Stretching from the Andes to Patagonia, Argentina's unique terroir lends to high quality wines. Formerly associated with inexpensive bulk wine but dramatically shifting focus from quantity to quality, Argentina is the most important wine-producing country in South America. Certainly excellent values abound here still, but increases in vineyard investment, improved winery technology, and a commitment to innovation since the late 20th century have contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains can be used to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

    Mendoza, a large and famous region responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white. The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

    Torrontes

    View all wine

    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 the offspring of Muscat of Alexandria), but the primary difference is that it is almost always vinified completely dry. This results in a wine that smells sweet upon first sniff, but is decidedly not on the palate. Torrontés is grown extensively throughout Argentina and performs best in the Salta region. It is also planted to a lesser extent in neighboring Uruguay.

    In the Glass

    No one has ever accused Torrontés of being shy in either aroma or flavor. Notes of rose petals, geranium, stone fruit, Meyer lemon, ripe melon, and orange blossom leap out of the glass, and the palate refreshes with a healthy dose of acidity and a streak of salinity. Torrontés should be consumed in its youth to highlight its vibrancy and primary fruit flavors.

    Perfect Pairings

    Torrontés needs no food—it is delightful on its own as an aperitif wine. However, it can be quite a pleasant pairing with Asian or Indian cuisine, especially coconut curries. Stick to lighter fare like poultry, pork, or seafood in sauces that are flavorful but not heavy. Torrontés also makes for an ideal accompaniment to a bowl of fresh fruit.

    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 utilized outdoors in warm weather at a picnic, beside a pool, or on a porch.
