Producer Information

The Organic & biodynamic Bodegas Krontiras was founded in 2003, when Constantinos and Silvina Krontiras, amazed by the landscape and its resemblance to their homeland Greece, decided to acquire an 80-years-old Vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza.

They built an impressive Winery applying the golden ratio φ (1,618) and π (3,14) to create an excellent environment for wine elaboration and aging. The winery uses natural insulation materials (straws) to achieve energy saving and apply a very rational use of natural resources during the production process.

The winemaking team and the general profile of their wines is managed by renowned Greek enologist Panos Zouboulis, who got its degree in Bordeaux and accounts for over 30 years of experience, mostly in Europe, and has specialised in organic and biodynamic cultivation.

The winery is located in a 10ha vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, with an average of over 80 years, and they also source grapes from a second farm with 18 hectares of newer vines in Maipo, Mendoza.

Grapes

Torrontes,

Production

The Solar del Alma Torrontes 2023 pays homage to Argentina's emblematic white grape. Sourced from a high-altitude organic vineyard in the province of La Rioja, the grapes are carefully hand-harvested in 20 kg boxes, reflecting a commitment to quality. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks over a period of 21 days, preserving the organic essence of the wine. This Torrontes, a vital addition to the portfolio, captures the essence of the region and the grape.

Tasting Notes

This Torrontes unveils a refreshing and aromatic profile, embodying the spirit of its varietal and terroir. On the nose, notes of citrus and tropical fruits, such as lime, mandarin, and pineapple, dance alongside delicate floral tones of fruit trees and honeysuckle. The palate mirrors the aromatic promise, offering a fresh and fruity experience that encapsulates the essence of the high-altitude organic vineyard.

Embrace the freshness of the Solar del Alma Torrontes 2023 by pairing it with a variety of light and flavorful dishes. Serve it as an aperitif alongside a plate of ceviche or sushi to enhance its citrus notes. Its vibrant character also makes it a delightful companion to seafood salads, grilled shrimp, or dishes featuring fresh herbs. The recommended serving temperature of 8 - 10°C ensures that the wine's crisp and aromatic qualities are fully enjoyed. Whether enjoyed on a warm afternoon or as an accompaniment to a festive gathering, this Torrontes promises a delightful sensory journey.
