2019 Chakana Estate Torrontes - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"This is an attractive new style for Torrontés. Made with grapes from Gualtallary and fermented and aged in 500 liters barrels, the 2019 Torrontés Chakana Estate Selection is a fascinating wine: pale and murky in the glass because of the lees, the reductive focus ensures pristine aromas: white peach, gentle orange blossom, fennel and basil. In the mouth it is dry with a chalky texture well-balanced by the heightened freshness. The long, thirst-quenching finish makes this a wine to watch out for. Joaquín HIDALGO"

2020 Chakana Estate Torrontes - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2020 Torrontés Chakana Estate Selection from El Cepillo, Uco Valley, was fermented in 500-liter barrels. Yellow in the glass. The mild nose delivers aromas of basil, jasmine and a little muscat. Flavorful in the mouth with a voluminous feel and accomplished freshness that allows room for both fat and a good flow, it has a slightly chalky texture followed by a pleasantly herbal and fruity finish. - Joaquín HIDALGO"
