Matías Riccitelli Old Vines from Patagonia Torrontés 2019
Grapes for the Matías Riccitelli Old Vines from Patagonia Torrontés are sourced from the traditional vine growing site of Allen in the Alto Valley in the province of Rio Negro, Patagonia, approximately half way between the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The ungrafted, low-yielding vines were planted at the end of the 1960s and they are cultivated naturally following organic principles resulting in wines that are expressive of the terroir and their varietal characteristics. All the grapes are hand-harvested once they have reached optimal maturity and then carefully selected prior to vinification. 50% of the grapes were gently pressed prior to fermentation, while the remaining 50% were fermented on the skins, resulting in complex flavour development. Fermentation took place with wild yeasts in clay amphora and continued to age for eight months, before being bottled without fining or filtration. A golden toned wine with complex and fine aromas of citrus fruit, white floral notes and subtle vanilla highlights. Perfectly balanced on the palate, with lovely volume and an elegant finish.

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
