An intensely aromatic wine from a unique fusion of new and old world varietals.
Torrontés and Chardonnay are not common bedfellows, but when you want a crisp, refreshing sparkling wine that promises never to be boring, then this is the pair you want. Chardonnay gives this wine satisfying body and richness, and the Torrontés adds its signature tangerine and floral aromas and flavors. Crack this open with a dozen dancing friends, with your parents over a plate of cheese, or just sip it quietly on your porch.
Pairs well with sashimi, sushi, spinach quiche and empanadas.
The non-vintage Torrontes/Chardonnay is a blend of 20% and 80% respectively, made under the Champenoise and Charmat method. The Torrontes, which comes from La Rioja rather than Salta, lifts the aromatics with some lovely lime and lychee aromas. The palate is well-balanced, with attractive passion fruit and lime notes, crisp acidity and a nicely poised, peachy finish. This is a great sparkling Argentinean wine.
