Casarena Areyna Torrontés 2020
100% Torrontes from vines with an average age of 43 years in the remote northern Valle de Cafayate. The pergola style vineyard has a semi-arid climate and soils that are predominantly alluvial with deep sandy texture.
Manual harvest of the grapes with strict selection. After a careful destemming, the fruit soaks in water briefly for more colour and flavour extraction. A gentle pressing follows and the juice is left to rest in cool temperatures to allow the coarser components to settle. The clean juice undergoes spontaneous alcoholic fermentation over 3 weeks with wild yeasts in temperature-controlled (14–16°C) stainless steel tanks. The young wine then moves to used French oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and ages in the same barrels for 6 months. Light filtering and bottling.
Ageing potential: 2+ years.
