Michel Torino Torrontés Don David 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Not chardonnay nor sauvignon blanc. What a nice change. From one of the top Argentine estates. Cafayate has become a top area for the production of Torrontes as its soil and climate conditions enhance this grape's varietal character.Typical aromatics for the varietal, notes of peach and flower blossoms, but the palate has a bit more structure and balance than often found in Torrontes.

Its buildings, covered with silver shone and its people dressed in gold. In 1692 an earthquake buried the city and his its treasures. In the late 1970's the company bought the El Esteco estate and recovered the hidden treasure. We discovered the riches came from the soil. In honour to the legend, El Esteco produces the best grapes used for Michel Torino top export wines. Read less
