Winery Michel Torino

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

Region: Salta

Salta is a fascinating and unusual wine region, quite unlike any other found on earth. The region is situated extremely close to the earth's equator, at a latitude which, in other countries, would render grapevines completely useless. However, the fact that Salta is also a wine region situated at a remarkably high altitude ensures that grapevines can indeed grow, and grow very well. Over the past few decades in Salta's key wine provinces of Cafayate and Molinos, wine production levels have increased dramatically as more wineries open to make the most of this remarkable and unique terroir. Salta's location ensures that the terroir is packed full of minerals, and enjoys wonderful climatic conditions, which ensure full ripeness and plenty of flavor and character in the resulting wines.

Country: Argentina

In the dry, arid deserts of Argentina, wineries and winemakers are focusing their efforts on producing high quality wines for the world market. By experimenting with both traditional and modern methods and technologies, they have found great success with a wide variety of grapes well suited to the conditions of the country, particularly Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the past decade, Argentinian wineries have continued to aim high, and this has led to a range of new wines using grape varietals not typically associated with the country. The cooler regions of Argentina are seeing more vineyards being planted with Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir varietals, something that is beginning to produce fantastic results, which are at once representative of the country's wines - with all their fruity and bold character - but are also pushing the boundaries of what we expect from a New World country.
