The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda in the Eastern region of Mendoza. They are made by Leopoldo Kuschnaroff, a winemaker and viticulturist in charge of all Catena family vineyards in Eastern Mendoza. Torrontés is indigenous to Argentina and has a unique profile that has quickly made it the country's signature white grape. The high altitude vineyard where the Tilia Torrontés grapes are sourced sits at an incredibly high 5,500 feet above sea level.

Tasting Notes

The nose offers aromatic notes white flower and citrus fruits. On the palate, fresh flavors of white peach and lemon give way to grapefruit, Mirabelle plum, and fennel. It finishes with a refreshingly bright acidity.

Food Pairing

The fragrant qualities of Tilia Torrontés have a particular affinity for dishes featuring aromatic ingredients like lemongrass, cilantro, ginger, and star anise. This wine would be a fantastic companion to any dish served with herb seafood sauce or just a simply prepared dish of Pescado en Cilantro.
