The Wines

2015 Torrontés
Torrontés is a unique white grape almost exclusively grown in Argentina. This wine from Tercos is dry and refreshing with flavors of grapefruit, peach, apple, melon and pineapple.

  • Suggested Retail: $14.00

 

2015 Bonarda
Bonarda is the second most planted grape variety in Argentina (after Malbec), and is thought to be the same grape as the Italian Charbono. The grape originally hails from Piedmont, and was brought to Argentina by immigrants. These grapes are grown on the Tupungato mountainside—one of the highest elevations in the Andes—where the days are warm and the nights cool. This Bonarda is unoaked, vibrant and full of fresh red fruits.

  • Suggested Retail: $14.00

2015 Sangiovese
Italian immigrants introduced the Sangiovese grape to Argentina, and there is still a deep appreciation for Italian culture in this Latin American country. This deep red Sangiovese has great aromatic intensity of ripe strawberries and black currants. It has a good balance between fruit and acidity, making it ideal for Italian food featuring tomato sauces.

  • Suggested Retail: $14.00

2015 Malbec
Ricardo Santos was the first winemaker to export this varietal from Argentina, and he began the process of making Malbec Argentina’s signature wine. This Malbec has fruity, aromatic characteristics of blackberry and ripe cherry. This first release has great volume and depth with a long finish, maintaining the soft tannins and easy drinkability of a classic Malbec.
