Bodega Colome Estate Series Salta Torrontes
Region: Salta, Argentina
Bottle size: 75cl
Intense gold in colour with green tones, this wine has a bright floral nose with aromas of grapefruit, tropical fruits and a hint of spice. On the palate, it is fresh and well structured with a crisp finish.
The high altitude of the Calchaquí Valley and high diurnal range ensures a long growing season. The diurnal range, as much as 25°C, helps retain natural acidity in the grapes. The climate is dry with very little rainfall, on average around 120 millimetres per year. Soils are sandy with layers of gravel which helps drainage. The vineyards are farmed according to biodynamic principles. The Torrontés vines are grown between 1,700 and 2,300 metres above sea level.
Bodega Colomé was established in 1831 and is the oldest working winery in Argentina with one of the world’s highest vineyards. Perhaps because of this great tradition, which is allied to the dynamism it displays today, Bodega Colomé was chosen again by Tim Atkin MW as one of his ‘First Growths’ in the classification of Argentinian wineries he made for his 2020 Argentina Report.
