The color is a delicate clear yellow with varietal aromas of lychee, grapefruit, tropical fruits and rose petals. The palate surprises with a burst of juicy acidity.
The northern reaches of Argentina feature majestic landscapes that carry the legacy of an ancient Incan
empire. In honor of those original inhabitants, Bodega Tukma was named after the Incan word for chief.
Located in the Valle de Calchaquies between Salta and Tucuman, both estate vineyards are located at
unusually high elevations. Los Tolombones is situated at 5,578 feet above sea level and Los Angastacos
at 6,529 feet above sea level. The extreme temperature fluctuations (sometimes as much as 50 degrees
from day to evening) results in fruit with concentrated flavors, thick skins and well-developed tannins. The
wines are produced by long-time winemaker and Torrontes specialist, Jose Luis Mounier.
|Named in honor of the region's Incan chief, this estate is considered one of the foremost producers of
terroir-driven, traditionally made wines. Winemaker Jose Luis Mounier specializes in crafting a Torrentes
that balances the varietal's natural, floral and peach aromatics with nuanced minerality.
