Susana Balbo Barrel Fermented Torrontes
Uco Valley, Mendoza
The wines of Susana Balbo’s signature series are her maximum expression of her art as a wine- maker. The barrels with the most sophisticated aromatics and flavours are selected for this wine. Susana looks for great complexity and balance in her wines, and each varietal is individually fermented and aged in order to achieve this. All of the wines of this line are a reflection of the personal likes and preferences of Susana, who individually composes each batch.
Produced in very limited quantity, this wine was fermented for three months in medium-toast French oak barrels. The result is a wine that embraces the delicate floral aromas of this unique grape variety, intertwined with enchanting exotic fruit characters, a twist of lime, and notes of wild honey and fresh vanilla. Sublime yet subtle in the mouth, the finish is elegant, long, and finely balanced
