ABOUT THE WINE
In 2001, a famously perfectionist Bordeaux chateau-owner, the late Catherine Péré Vergé, embarked upon a new venture in Mendoza, Argentina, and founded Bodegas Monteviejo. With the assistance of Michel Rolland as consultant and Marcelo Pelleriti as winemaker, the attention to detail shown at her most famous estates of La Gay and La Violette in Pomerol was transplanted to the new world. The estate boasts over 100 hectares of vineyards in Mendoza, planted at high density to control yields, producing wines of exceptional quality and intensity.

TASTING NOTES
Intensely floral aromas, with a wonderfully complex citrus-peel character. The palate is fresh and dry, with ripe, fleshy pear and apricot, peaches and honey, and a savoury ginger note typical of the variety. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel to maintain the varietal character and minimise exposure to oxygen; the result is a bright, harmonious wine.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfection with Asian cuisine, especially aromatic, spicy Thai. Peruvian ceviche would also be an excellent pairing.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Torrontès is a distinctly Argentine grape variety, related to Muscat, but genetically distinct. The grape benefits enormously from the extreme altitude of most Argentine vineyards, which provide warm, dry daytime conditions, and cold, crisp nights which heighten the naturally low acidity of the variety, and create the balanced palate which makes this wine so charming to drink.
