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.
