This wine’s Andean coolness shifts between rock salt and oyster shells—a mineral character that sets it apart from its peers. Grown at elevations reaching 5,400 feet, on 43-year-old vines, this hides torrontés’s florality until the finish, along with orange peel and a Campari-like bitterness that hints at more detail to come with air. It would match with grilled chicken and capers in a lemon sauce, as one taster suggested, or fire-grilled river trout.
