The history of the Torrontés grape is a bit of a mystery. While some Argentines claim the grape is native to their country, some wine experts believe that it was brought to the New World many years ago by settlers from Spain as a descendent of the Muscat grape. In any case, Torrontés truly is uniquely Argentine and no other country in the world produces it. Torrontés thrives in the high altitude regions of Argentina, especially within Mendoza, where the wines are made with more concentrated flavors of melon and tropical fruits.

The Solemne 2010 Torrontés offers lively notes of green apple, roses, white flowers and rich tropical fruits. Crisp, refreshing, and bone-dry with a hint of minerality on the finish, the Solemne Torrontés is a wonderful partner to smoked meats, light pastas, and medium cheeses.
