The Pampas wines are an absolute stalwart of the Weavers range and I make no apologies for including it in your packs again. You definitely won't have tried this one before however, it is brand new and also represents quite an interesting blend of grape varieties that I have never come across together before.
Torontés is not to everyone’s tastes (although I did get some great feedback from the Zohar I put in a previous Wine Club case) so pampas have quite cleverly blended it with unoaked Chardonnay. The warmer climate at the vineyard brings out the tropical characteristics of the Chardonnay and this combines beautifully with the floral overtones. This is just a great wine that belies the price tag. I hope you enjoy this versatile wine as much as I do.
Torrontés is a difficult white grape traditionally planted in the Galicia region of North-West Spain. The grape can produce wines that are high in natural acidity with interesting aromas and assertive floral flavours. The vine has developed well in Argentina where two sub-varieties have been grown called Torrontés Riojano and Torrontés Sanjuanino.
