Wine Description

The Tilia wines are made by Leopoldo Kuschnaroff, winemaker and viticulturist 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.

Acclaim
“Lots of mangoes, papaya, dried apricots and peach pit. Medium-to-full body with very racy acidity and a fresh finish.”
— James Suckling, Mar 2018
“Produced with grapes from Salta, the 2017 Torrontés fermented and matured in stainless steel. It's clean and subtle, with contained aromatics and very tasty flavors. It's dry and serious. It was bottled in December 2017.”
— Wine Advocate, Jun 2018
