THE WINE & THE REGION
Grape Varietal: 100% Torrontes
In the constant search for the best quality fruit available, Rutini Wines has always sought out vineyards in the top viticulture regions of Mendoza. Pioneering the industry, Rutini Wines was one of the first to plant vineyards in Tupungato in 1925, now recognized as one of Mendoza’s premier viticulture regions.
The Tupungato Valley is located 50 miles to the south of the city of Mendoza. In the foothills of the Andes, the altitudes of the Uco Valley range from 3,000 to 5,000 feet above sea level. The optimal altitude and micro-climates provide for especially ideal grape growing conditions.
The sunny day and dry summer conditions assure for complete maturation of the grapes, and the cool evening temperatures and controlled irrigation serve to prolong the longevity of the grapes, creating good balance between sugar and acidity. The pebble-covered soils allow optimal drainage and low humidity.

On the palate, it’s pleasantly fresh, with citrus notes, beautiful structure and pleasant acidity. Prolonged and mouthfilling finish.
