PRODUCER NOTE:
The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks; significant in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is taken in crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and microclimates. Led by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate honours their commitment to sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear water and nutrient rich soil and their award winning wines are produced with wisdom, precision and care.

VINEYARD:
From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli’s Cafayate wines, grown at an elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful north western Argentinian mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area, with its pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes, is that it produces grapes bursting with flavour, making this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier grape growing regions in the world.

WINEMAKING:
The grapes were gently destemmed and pressed. The free-run juice was cold static clarified for 14 to 24 hours at 8°C. The must was separated from the lees, leaving the freshest juice. This was vinified with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 12 to 16°C. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to another tank to rest until bottling.

TASTING NOTE:
A fragrant, fruity example of the Torrontés variety from Argentina. Bright and fruity with tropical fruit flavours, this is elegant and beautifully balanced with a refreshing finish.

GRAPE:
Torrontés 100%.
