Torrontes Chardonnay Premium Domaine Bousquet (Argentina)

Domaine-Bousquet-Torrontes

 12,00

A thrilling taste of Argentina’s great white: Torrontés, which is the noble white grape of the country. It makes dry and sweet styles of wine, but in this instance it has been nicely blended with Chardonnay to produce a very fine, unoaked and dry wine that shows highly tropical aromas, along with appealing perfumed florals. 100% made from organic grapes. It’s yummy with poached salmon, or even with an Asian dish.

Aroma:
Tropical aromas and intense fruits like pineapple, mango and peach, with delicate floral notes.

Taste:
Medium-bodied with bright acidity and an almost lush fruit finish.

Domaine Bousquet
Four generations of the Bousquet family made wine in southern France, in the city of Carcassonne, before Jean Bousquet had the idea that Argentina would be a good place to produce wine.

He sold his vineyards in France and in the 1990s moved to Argentina with his daughter Anne and her husband Labid Al Ameri, to find a good location. Mendoza, the largest wine region in Argentina, was the obvious choice, but not so much the part of Mendoza they settled on.

Bousquet bought about 270 acres (since expanded to 600 acres) in the Gualtallary valley in Tupungato, Mendoza, in 1997. With cool nights and a near-constant breeze, the vineyard is in a region with the ideal conditions to produce ripe grapes and extraordinary wines.

Domaine Bousquet practices organic viti- and viniculture.

The Region

Mendoza | Argentina

Mendoza is the great throbbing heart of Argentine wine. It is a winegrowing region with a combination that is unique in the world in terms of altitude, desert climate, low humidity and natural meltwater irrigation.

Mendoza Province is one of the Argentina’s most important wine regions, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the country’s entire wine production. Located in the eastern foothills of the massive Andes in the shadow of Mount Aconcagua, vineyards are planted at some of the highest altitudes in the world, with the average site located 600–1,100 metres above sea level.

Although many grape varieties are planted, Malbec is king in Mendoza.
