This is an orange wine. It is a reference to the fact that this wine is fermented with skin contact and not a direct reference to the color. The exact hue may vary from fairly pale to a deep amber.
Torontel, also known as Torrontes, is a grape that evolved from a natural cross of Moscatel de Alejandria and Pais. A white wine rich in spies and floral tones. This is an intense wine with tremendous body and acidity, with especially firm, sharp tannins.
Roberto Henríquez spent several years working in South Africa, Canada and France before going on to study agronomy and enology. In 2015 he moved back home to Biobío and began his own project based on the grape País, in part motivated by Louis Antoine Luyt. Quickly he got a lot of recognition due to his most important work in principle of recovering the traditional viticultre in the South of Chile, by obtaining a delicate rusticity in all his wines.
