Lots of dried lemon and green apple character. Medium body, lime and grapefruit. Crisp. A blend of grapes from Mendoza and Cafayate. Screw cap.

The 2016 Críos Torrontés is a 50/50 blend of juice from Cafayate in Salta and Altamira in Valle de Uco fermented in their respective regions and then assembled in her winery in Mendoza. It's the prototype of fresh Torrontés with tension and good acidity, without overwhelming aromas, designed for the dinner table. 2016 was an interesting harvest in Cafayate, as the frost reduced yields by 50%, and in Altamira they also got lower than normal yields. The wine has great freshness and a subtle nose. Crisp and aromatic without overwhelming your senses and with good weight of fruit. This time lower yields have resulted in higher quality. 324,000 bottles produced.
