Vintage Notes
2010

The 2010 vintage was classic and satisfactory. Weather conditions determined significantly pronounced seasons, considering that spring frosts reduced yield and helped increase grape quality. Summer was mild, whilst autumn was cool, dry and long. This led to a slow ripeness, resulting in distinct varietal, naturally acid and fruity wines.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale yellow in the glass with greenish hues, an intense aromatic bouquet fairly bursts with notes of white flowers. Lemon blossom and rose notes stand out, accompanied by citric and tropical fruit aromas, like lime and pineapple. Ginger spicy notes, typical of this variety, are also present. In the mouth, fruit is front and center, as is a wonderful acidity, both combining to produce an outstanding fresh sensation. An uncomplicated wine with a long, sweetish finish typical with cheerful Torrontés vines.
Ratings
Wine Advocate – 90 pts "The 2010 Torrontes Reserva is sourced from Cafayate. It offers up a captivating nose of mineral, peach, mango and pineapple: leading to a crisp, dry, impeccably balanced wine that will serve well as both an aperitif and savory courses. Torrontes does not get much better than this. Drink this outstanding value over the next 12-18 months." Jay Miller
Awards
Decanter World Wine Awards - International Trophy winner: Best dry aromatic wine over 10£ in the world. “Although it stood unopposed in the final round, this wine thoroughly deserves its Trophy. In addition to completing a brace of victories for Torrontés, the win highlights what a fertile breeding ground Salta is for the variety. The Terrazas team works with vineyards at various sites in Mendoza. Its motto: ‘the ideal altitude for each grape variety’. When it came to sourcing Torrontés, the team travelled north alongside the Andes to Salta, favouring its unique combination of unusually high altitude and sub-tropical latitude. ‘We found in Cafayate the perfect oasis for Torrontés, where it can reveal its maximum expression of floral and fruity aromas, high acidity and perfect balance,’ explains training system, to protect the berries from the intense sunlight with several layers of leaves.’ Hervé Birnie-Scott, Terrazas’ estate director. "We use a traditional pergola vine."
