2011 Monteviejo "Festivo" Torrontes Mendoza (Previously $12)

SKU #1112713 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale bright yellow. Fresh peach, white flowers and mint on the clean, vibrant nose; reminded me of viognier. Supple, fruity and dry, with the peach and floral flavors carrying through in the mouth. Finishes with a slight warmth but good lingering perfume.  (4/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Monteviejo is under the same ownership as Chateau Le Gay and Chateau La Violette in Pomerol and also features the same cellar team: Winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti and consultant Michel Rolland. The estate is located in the fine terroir of Vista Flores in the Uco Valley of Mendoza.

Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
