About Estate:
This 100% Torrontés from La Rioja has all the characteristics of the varietal: crisp and refreshing, with green apple with delicate citrus and floral aromas on the palate, quite dry and creamy, delicately bubbly with a long, pleasant finish. 12.5 % vol

Torrontés from Salta, Argentina, has become of the icons of Argentine exports. So this is the first time I had a Torrontés from La Rioja and the first time I had sparkling Torrontés. A welcome addition to the world of sparkling wines.

The winemaker, Dr. Rodolfo Griguol, is one of Argentina’s most respected winemakers, and has deservedly won the reputation of being the “King of Torrontés”. Rodolfo has worked for La Riojana for over 25 years and currently manages a team of seven winemakers. Amongst Rodolfo’s professional achievements: the ecotopic yeast for production of Torrontés Riojano wine

Food Pairing:
Recommended food pairings for specific champagnes: Although these are only guidelines as taste is a very personal thing.
Brut non vintage:
Scrambled eggs,Any mushroom dish Nuts, especially almonds Popcorn and potato crisps Cheese- especially hard cheeses such as parmesan, gouda or cheddar. Pasta or risotto-especially with cream or mushroom sauce. Avoid heavy tomato-based sauces as the acidity clashes with the high acidity of the champagne. Thin crust pizza, but not with heavy tomato-based topping.
