"A crisp, dynamic torrontés, this captures the essence of the grape in a friendly interpretation: floral in scent, generous in its sweet white fruit, slightly tannic in texture, with vibrant acidity. Delicious with chicken empanadas." Reviewed June 2015.
Torrontes is the closest thing Argentina has to a native white variety, and it was actually an accident, the result of a spontaneous cross between the varieties Muscat de Alexandria and criolla. The Spanish settlers brought these two varieties over from Europe in order to make domestic bulk and sacramental wines.
As a variety, Torrontes is pretty transparent, white floral aromatics betraying its parentage. In Salta, Torrontes thrives at super high elevations. Like, ridiculously high. (Consider: vineyards start at an elevation of about 5700ft, similar to the height of New Hampshire's Mount Jefferson, and only go up from there.) Salta is relatively close to the equator for wine production so grapes need high-elevation sites, where the climate is a bit cooler and the temperature drops way down over night. The 2014 Altocedro Abras Torrontes Salta reflects this unique terroir, filling the mouth with rich fruit flavors, while also providing refreshing acidity.
Now that we've got your mouth watering for some summer white wine, we just have to ask: who's making those empanadas?
