Manos Negras, Torrontes, Salta, Argentina
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
Manos Negras focuses on latitude winemaking, planting Torrontes in the northern stretches of Cadayate in Salta, Pinot Noir in the southern-most region of Neuquen in Patagonia and cultivates 50 year old Malbec vines in the prized Altamira appellation in the Uco Valley. Alejandro Sejanovich is arguably Argentina's most knowledgeable viticulturist, working as vineyard director for Bodega Catena Zapata for 16 years, he pioneered high altitude vineyard planting and conducted ground breaking research on Mendoza Malbec clones. Torrontés is the signature white grape from Argentina. The high altitude and northerly latitude of Cafayate in Salta provide the ideal conditions for this once minor Spanish grape to flourish as nowhere else in the world. This lovely wine is of light yellow colour, with explosive floral aromas, citrus fruit flavours and a crisp, clean finish. Ideal with Poultry, fish and flavoursome spiced dishes.
