Press ReviewPress

Argentina is less well-known for its whites, yet they can also shine. The country’s leading white grape is Torrontes, with its spicy, aromatic, honeysuckle and lychee-drenched characteristics, still relatively undiscovered over here. As with all grape varieties, there is a multitude of styles – I was impressed with the fresh, zesty lime peel and citrus tang of Don David El Esteco Torrontes, with its vibrant, mouthwatering fruit and lively freshness. As we tiptoe towards the balmier days of Spring, this is a perfect mid-season white, equally at home with spicy thai prawn curries and simple tapas and salads.

Winemaking

The harvest is manual putting the clusters in small 22 kg boxes. In the winery the must is produced using just first press juice. This wine is vinified with three different techniques: 30% is cold macerated, 60% traditional fermentation and 10% is aged in small American barrels during 3 months. This last 10% goes through malolactic fermentation using selected lactic bacterias.
