The scent of rose petal provides Torrontes’ signature soapy fragrance, joined by tangerine, grapefruit, and mint with a hint of sea breeze.
Well balanced and refreshing on the palate, nestled between textured dry extract and angular acidity, the softening lines of pure fruit insinuate richness, despite its featherweight. A bit of spritz inspires a dance of strangers as the wine finishes tartly.
Carefree and gleeful, like a wacky child, it has no serious purpose but to make you laugh and sing under Bebel Gilberto’s Jabuticaba tree.
Notes: Grapes grown in the high altitude desert of Cafayate, Salta, Argentina. Commercial yeast and brief carbonic maceration, aged in stainless steel.
