Wine tasting notes

“Just as an apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, a wine cannot be made without a story. My winemaking reflects what I was taught by my family and reflects the passion that characterizes each one of us”. Torrontes is Argentina's signature white grape, this crisp and refreshing torrontes is a classic example. The nose has fresh and inviting aromas of roses and citrus. On the palate its complex and refreshing.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 89 pts

Dec 2016 - Luis Gutierrez - There is a 2016 The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree Torrontés, a fresh and gastronomical Torrontés with natural acidity, with grapes sourced from Tupungato in the Valle de Uco, without overwhelming aromas, more on the white flower spectrum rather than the Moscatel aromas. Identifiable as Torrontés but with great freshness.


Tim Atkin (2016) - 90 pts

Grown on an old pergola vine in cooler Tupungato, this is one of the lighter and more floral Torrontés on the market, with none of the oiliness that you sometimes find in examples from Salta in the north. Appealingly refreshing. 2017-18
