Areas of cultivation Torrontés is cultivated throughout Argentina and its surface is steadily increasing: the reason, in part, of this increase is due to Argentine wine export growth, where the vine has been particularly successful in the United States , The United Kingdom and Canada, but also by better understanding and identifying the various torrontés varieties that allow better plant counting.
History For many years, the origin of torredes cultivars has been subject to speculation: it was believed that the torrontes of South America were the same variety as torredes from Galicia in Spain. Recent research using the genetic footprint has shown that the three torredes are genetically closely related, but distinct vines: and with a high degree of probability, the results indicated that torrontes rejoy and torrontes and sanjuanine are each the progeny of a cross between muscat Of Alessandria and chrysalis chica and that torrontes mendocino is probably the offspring of moscato di Alessandria, although the other parent was not identified.
Ampelographic features Torrontés is a white Argentine wine grape variety, producing fresh, aromatic wines with moderate acidity, smooth texture and mouthfeel as well as distinctive peach and apricot aromas on the nose.
Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety The three grapes are relatively similar but do have some noticeable differences. Torrontés Riojano and Torrontés Sanjuanino both tend to have large loose bunches of pale grapes while Torrontés Mendocino, however, has smaller, tighter bunches of darker yellow grapes. Torrontés Riojano is the most aromatic of the three, with aromas reminiscent of Muscat and Gewürtztraminer wines. The least aromatic, and least widely planted, is Torrontés Mendocino with the aromatics and plantings of Torrontés Sanjuanino falling in between.
Notes Three Torrontés varieties exist in Argentina: Torrontés Riojano, the most common, Torrontés Sanjuanino, and Torrontés Mendocino. It is primarily Torrontés Riojano that has received attention for the quality of its wines, and is the variety used for most Argentine wines simply labeled Torrontés.
