The 2014 Torront¨¦s Serie A from Salta is always harvested early to keep the acidity and less overpowering aromas. Maceration is also very short and only for part of the grapes, the rest is a direct pressing. The must is fermented and the transported to Mendoza where it's kept with the lees during the winter and when the heat starts, it is bottled. The nose reminds me more of a Gew¨¹rztraminer than a Moscatel, with the spicy part being quite dominant with pungent notes of herbs (even oregano). This is an especially spicy year and the nose is not overpowering, but is more subtle than in your face. The palate is very fresh, with pungent flavors and that faint bitter aftertaste so typical of the variety.
