Don't miss this porch pounder with complexity, the La Yunta Torrontés, at an amazing price for the next two days.
As much as we love a good Malbec, Torrontés (an Argentinean white grape) may be the best thing coming out of Argentina these days. It's a perfect match for warm, summertime weather or seafood anytime.
And while many examples can be quite simple (yet very refreshing), fermented completely in stainless steel, today's wine levels up the complexity by its careful selection from an older 45-year-old vineyard in a different spot (Valle de Famatina in La Rioja) than is typical. A small portion of the wine also spends time in French oak.
Here's how the winery describes it:
While most Argentine Torrontés is produced in La Salta, we prefer it from La Rioja. The region’s more moderate climate produces a Torrontés that is much more “focused” on the palate and considerably drier than most. Careful vineyard management and native yeast fermentation make this Torrontés with Terroir!
Picked at varying degrees Brix and fermented separately and then blended. 5% of the wine was aged in French oak to give it a wider palate. 45 year old vineyard. 4 g/L residual sugar.
Even better than all of this is the price of today's wine, which is just $10.67 a bottle.
For the next two days you can get 6 bottles of the La Yunta Torrontés for just $63.99!

From the winery:
The Spanish words, “La Yunta” signify a pair pulling together for a common cause. This pioneering project was created in 2001 by Elixir Wine Group founder/President, Kirk Ermisch as a way of showing the world the excellence and crisp, lively balance of the Torrontés grape.
Because of the frequent migration of Galician workers from Spain to Argentina, wine historians used to believe that Torrontés was originally from Spain. But recent DNA studies have concluded that the Torrontés in Argentina today is not related to the variety in Spain.
La Yunta Torrontés is a 100% Torrontés Riojana from the third largest Argentine grape growing region of La Rioja. Located 7 hours drive north of Mendoza, La Rioja is a semi-arid, high plateau area known for its ability to produce quality Torrontés with a fine balance between bright citrus notes, stone fruit, and floral aromatics.
Notably aromatic of green melon and white peach. It has balanced citrus flavor with a touch of French oak to provide a crisp yet lingering finish. Wonderful as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to seafood or poultry.
The 2021 La Yunta Torrontés opens with an intriguing and attractive aroma of melon and citrus along with some floral and herbaceous notes.
It only takes one sip to know that this is a very refreshing example of the variety, a "porch pounder" as we like to call it. Yet unlike many in this style, it also offers enough complexity (likely from those older vines) to keep things interesting. This balanced wine features good acidity and good depth on the fruit (which is more tart in the mouth) as well as a bit of a smooth, creamy mouthfeel thanks to the small portion of the wine that spent time in oak.
It ends with a dry, lip-smacking finish that leaves a lingering fruity sweetness on your lips. Excellent!

"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
