Description

So, our supplier asked for a top-notch Chardonnay, and boy did they get one! What they didn't ask for was a white blend to blow their socks off, and boy did we get one! They were asked to taste it blind at the winery and they did identify the Semillon, and the Sauvignon Blanc, but what was providing that exotic richness on the nose; Riesling? No, Torrontés. 33% of each varietal is separately barrel fermented then blended and rested in those barrels for a further 4 months. The oak is delicate, the fruit is complex and explosive, run through with delicious acidity, steely and nervous, and we suspect this wine will age very well indeed. This is one of the most noteworthy, pioneering and impressive wines from all of South America. The grapes are from Finca Delfina, Altamira, Uco Valley. Awarded 95/100, Tim Atkin 2020 Report, Best of Argentina (2019 vintage) 92 / 100, James Suckling 2020 Report (2019 vintage) - “Rich, well-integrated nose. Reductive and racy on the palate, with the Torrontés portion not obvious.”

Moules Asian

Perfect with Asian-styled Moules...

For classic moules mariniéres, what can be better than Muscadet sur lie from Nantes coast which is the perfect regional pairing. If the moules are prepared with Asian style ingredients like lemongrass, chili and ginger, consider a more fragrant white like a Sauvignon Blanc, Gruner Veltliner or a Torrontes. This wine from Argentina will work an absolute treat here!
