Regular price $27.00

Appellation: La Arboleda, Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina

This 100% Torrontes is made like a red wine with open top maceration/fermentation and aged in concrete eggs. A different style of Torrontes, the wine punches through the glass with notes of peach, apricot, and bright stargazer lily’s and undertones of sage, chamomile, and sandalwood. It has a lifted profile on the palate with bright acid, citrus notes of lemon merengue, and jasmine. This light orange wine is changing the perception of what boundaries can be placed on Torrontes. This is the Next Level.

Passionate Wines is the brainchild of Matias Michelini. He is the winemaker, agronomist, and Grand Poobah of his winery named Passionate Wines.  Matias strives to make experimental wines that express terroir.  These wines are low production and are drawn from multiple inspirations, regions, and styles.  The Via Revolucionaria wines are single vineyard, unconventional wines, fermented with native yeast.  He produces a skin macerated Torrontes “Brutal”, an unfiltered Semillon “Hulk”, and a carbonic macerated and fermented Bonarda “Pura”.  The Montesco wines are small production wines that focus on place and varietals.  Matias continues to experiment with other cuvees with the mantra of producing either atypical varietals or classic varietals in non-traditional methods.
