Zuccardi Serie A Torrontés 2019

Salta, North, ArgentinaSerie A references Zuccardi's Argentina Series, and showcasing varieties in terroirs where they best shine. For this torrontés, they selected the northwest valleys of Salta, the grape's homeland. This comes from high altitude vineyards, and was fermented in stainless, where it remained on lees for a few months prior to bottling. This captures the grape's fragrant lime hallmark, with lime blossoms, lime pith and peel, green melon, green apple, and a perfumed soapy note. Fresh and shining on the palate, belying its 14% alcohol until a gentle warmth and width on the finish. Pour alongside fragrant Thai or Vietnamese noodle dishes.Tasted: 16 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.00 private wine shops Producer: Familia ZuccardiDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
