Description

Casarena Areyna Torrontés 2020

Casarena Areyna Torrontés has a tight profile, elegant tension and beautiful citrus notes. Clear light golden colour with green tones. Pink grapefruit and lemon peel nose with floral notes of rose petals and wild white flowers. Vibrant acidity on the dry, medium to low-bodied palate. Modern, fresh and unique style of Torrontés that exudes flavours of Meyer lemon, pear, lychee and a hint of vanilla. Closes with a slightly salty and mouthwateringly acidic aftertaste.


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.
