August 15, 2019

Torrontes

Torrontes is Argentina’s signature white grape, accounting for around 30% of production. It’s an aromatic grape, with distinctive notes of white flower. It thrives in the Cafayate Valley in the northern region of Salta, but other regions are now achieving great results with the variety. It’s often compared to Gerwurztraminer and is a great match with Asian foods.
