Winemaker Notes

Amado Sur is a deep red wine with violet hues. Aromas of strawberries and red cherries intertwine with hints of clove and vanilla. Lush red berry flavor gives way to velvety tannins and a pleasant, persistent finish.

Enjoy Amado Sur with rich dishes and roasted meats including lamb, beef, and pork. This wine also marries well with spicy, fruit-based sauces and sides.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Torrontés makes up 80 percent of this blend, providing this wine’s prevailing sweet, floral aromas; viognier and chardonnay lend voluptuous generosity and complex, spicy notes. It’s a sure bet for fatty fish on the grill.

Trivento, Mendoza, Argentina
Image of winery

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.

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.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
