Complex, aromatic, sapid. Green olive, cheese, honey suckle, orange blossom, dill.
The 2013 Trumpeter Torrontés Reserva from Rutini Estate has a complex nose with notes of green olives, cheese and toasted bread.
At a second sniff I find a more floral character with honey suckle or orange blossom but also an aromatic note of dill.
The mouthfeel is round and pleasant.
The finish is rather long.
How it's made
Cold maceration for 2 hours at 4 degrees.
20% of grapes are fermented in new French barrles.
The wine is then aged for 3 months in oak.
Green grape variety
Torrontés is a white grape variety native to Argentina that produces crisp, aromatic wines with mild acidity, a silky texture and mouthfeel, and distinct peach and apricot aromas on the nose. In Argentina, three Torrontés varieties exist: the most popular, Torrontés Riojano, Torrontés Sanjuanino, and Torrontés Mendocino. Torrontés Riojano is the variety used for most Argentine wines simply called Torrontés, and it is the variety that has attracted recognition for the quality of its wines.Link to here... | Derived from 'Torrontés' on Wikipedia
