Piattelli Vineyards Torrontés 2017, Cafayate Valley, Salta, Argentina: Torrontés wine grapes for Piattelli Reserve 2017 are sourced from the high-altitude Parral vineyards planted in the Cafayate Valley. Floral on the nose with notes of toasty oak, on the palate the wine is dry, fruity, medium-bodied and mouth-watering. Grown at 5,890 feet elevation, where temperature extremes produce grapes full of flavour and evenly ripened. Well-balanced and zesty, chill and pour with spicy grilled shellfish dishes. ? Torrontés food pairings: prawn salad, grilled chicken breast with mango mandarin coulis, seafood pizza.
