San Pedro de Yacochuya Torrontes 2020 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 3 years. Serve chilled. Bodega San Pedro de Yacochuya is a collaborative project between famous “flying winemaker” Michel Rolland and the Etchart family who have been making wine in their native Argentina since 1850. The winery is located in Cafayate, one of the highest altitude winemaking regions in the world where the vines have to endure desert-like conditions with hot summers and very low rainfall. This terroir is perfectly-suited to Torrontes which is today considered Argentina’s iconic white wine variety. The grapes used for this wine are sourced from estate vineyards growing at 2000 metres above sea level. These harsh conditions help to emphasise the aromatic character of the grape as well as preserving plenty of mouthwatering freshness. To ensure the grapes reach the winery in optimal condition they are harvested early in the morning while it is still cool. Once in the winery they are carefully sorted and then fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The result is a refreshing and elegant white wine which is bursting with hints of honeysuckle, peach, almond blossom and citrus zest. Light bodied and very easy to drink, it makes a great aperitif and also pairs great with spicy Asian dishes, seafood and sushi.
