The Wine: WTF Torrontes 2017
WTF Torrontes 2017 is a white natural wine made from 100% Torrontes from Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina, grown on alluvial soli with chalky topsoil and loamy clay at the bottom, 1250 meters above sea level. The grapes are hand-harvested into small bins, pressed to separate the juice from the skins, and then everything is out into fourth-use oak barrels, where the must ferments spontaneously. WTF Torrontes 2017 is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with no added sulfites.
