100% Torrontes from Cafayate Valley, Salta. The grapes are bought from one producer with whom Accuro has a long term contract. Manual harvest in 18kg boxes. Because it is difficult to rent a bottling facility in Salta, the wine ferments there but is then put on a truck and drove at night to Mendoza, to the Vistalba winery.
About the Producer
Bodega Andana is a tiny winery owned by Carlos Pulenta’s son-in-law, Fernando Podesta. The grapes for all wines except the Torrontes come from Finca Los Alamos, a family farm owned by Antonio Pulenta. The 30 year old vineyards are located 1000 meters above sea level, at the foothills of the Andes. After a manual harvest in 18 kg boxes, the grapes are transported to Pulenta’s Vistalba winery where the wine’s production is overseen by Vistalba enologist Alejandro Canovas. The total production is around 5000 cases.
