Reviews

  • "90 points. A white with almost a semillon character, dried lemon and apples. Lime aromas and flavors too, plus saltiness. Full body, bright acidity and a tangy finish. Delicious now." (James Suckling)
  • "89 points. The 2013 Recuerdo Torrontes is the only wine that has grapes from outside the project. They purchased grapes in La Rioja, searching for citric rather than floral aromas. They harvest and vinify the grapes in three different stages (stainless steel fermented, no malo and no oak) and then they blend them together. Relatively restrained, with aromas of orange peel and tangerine, the palate is fresh, with good acidity and a citric finish that is ideal to go with some empanadas. Enjoy! Drink now."
