Torrontes

Torrontes
Torrontés is a light-skinned white grape variety with unclear origins, associated the most with Argentina, where it is the signature grape and one of the most widespread white wines and has achieved remarkable international recognition. The Torrontés has different styles from light and fresh to powerful and intensely perfumed, often showing spicy characters and aromas of white flowers. The interesting thing about the grape variety is that has three different clones Torrontes Sanjuanino, Torrontes Mendocino and Torrontes Riojano, as the last one is the most planted. All of these clones are to be found in the most suitable and high elevated region in Argentina for them, called Salta. The dry and desert-like conditions and the important daytime temperature shift helps to bring out the best in the Torrontés variety. It is also planted in Chile which is used mainly for the production of the national spirit drink called Pisco.
