Description

Susana Balbo Barrel Ferment Torrontés 2020

Pale gold with bright reflections. On the nose, this wine seduces with hints of white pear, white flowers and ripe peach. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity along with enticing fruit flavors. Plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry.

Susana is known as the “Queen of Torrontés” for her role in transforming Torrontés from an unknown blending grape into Argentina’s star white varietal.

100% Torrontés, hand picked, destemmed and cooled at 6° C. Macerated with dry ice per 6 hours, low pressed 100% fermented in new French oak for 4 months.

Susana’s Signature wines capture her ultimate expression as a winemaker - creating bold wines with artistic finesse that you never get tired of drinking. The wide range of styles in Susana’s Signature wines highlight the breadth of winemaking expertise Susana brings to the winery. Susana’s winemaking approach is to seamlessly apply her human touch and enhance (not mask) the grape’s character, preserving all elements of terroir.
