The Terroir Series Torrontes by Viña Kaiken is a fresh, grape-varietal white wine from the Argentine wine region Salta from the vineyards Valle de Cafayate.
In the glass, this wine shines in a bright greenish yellow with golden reflections. The lavishly fruity and elegant bouquet reveals varietal aromas of limes, grapefruit and freshly grated orange peels. This is accompanied by wonderfully woven notes of grapes and flowers. Delightfully fresh and lively, this Argentinian white wine presents itself on the palate. The racial acidity is perfectly integrated into the crisp body and accompanies to the finale of beautiful length.
Vinification of Kaiken Torrontes Terroir Series
In March the Torrontes grapes are harvested for this white wine in Cafayate. The harvested material is collected in small boxes and immediately brought to the Kaiken winery. There, the berries are completely destemmed and gently ground. Approximately 15% of the readings are cold mashed for 4 hours. This adds complexity to this wine. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks for about 3 weeks at a controlled temperature (12 to 16 degrees Celsius). After the fermentation process has been completed, this wine remains on the fine yeast for 6 months.
