Argentina’s native grape Torrontes, also produces amazing, aromatic whites of real distinction. Again the location of BODEGAS O FOURNIER’S winery close to theAndes at an altitude of 4000 ft above sea level produces fabulous quality grapes due to extreme diurnal temperatures and long ripening time. He is also renowned for old vine Tempranillo blended with Malbec. Torrontes comes from Salta where vineyards with lower latitudes and higher altitudes than almost any in the world, balance each other out, producing an excellent climate for quality viticulture.
