As many others, the Mendoza-based Terrazas de los Andes source their Torrontés from Cafayate in Salta, northern Argentina because they are in search of a straight, fresh, varietal and elegant wine. The grapes for the 2014 Torrontés grow at 1,800 meters altitude in a mixture of new and old pergola (parral) vineyards. It fermented at low temperature with two months in contact with the lees after which it was bottled to keep the freshness and fruit expression. There are notes of roses, lychees and spices that are fresh and varietal. The palate is not shy, it's round with marked flavors and very good acidity that provides freshness and length plus a faint pleasant bitterness toward the finish. 80,000 bottles produced.
