Wine Description

The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda in the Eastern region of Mendoza. They are made by Leopoldo Kuschnaroff, a winemaker and viticulturist in charge of all Catena family vineyards in Eastern Mendoza. Torrontés is indigenous to Argentina and has a unique profile that has quickly made it the country's signature white grape. The high altitude vineyard where the Tilia Torrontés grapes are sourced sits at an incredibly high 5,500 feet above sea level.

“Generously aromatic, like most Torrontés, with hints of green herb and even a bit of spice. Not that it’s abrasive; you’ll still get the balance of supple fruit and modest acidity. A good option for pairing, especially with Asian cuisines.”
