2011 Lurton Reserva Torrontes
"Extreme climate conditions at the foothills of the impressive Andes Mountains, high height, rocky soils, all kinds of colors and textures. This Torrontes expresses the striking impact of Francois Lurton's vision during his first visit to Argentina, where today our wines are created." -Winery
"Representing the 5th generation of the Bordeaux Lurton Family, Francois Lurton set up his own business in 1988 firstly with his brother Jacques. Today he runs the company single-handedly, owns and produces wines in estates in four countries: Argentina (Alta Uco Valley, Mendoza) since 1996, Chile (Lolol, Colchagua Valley) since 1999, France (Languedoc-Roussillon since 2001) and Spain (Rueda/Castilla y Leon & Toro) since 2002." -Importer
"Present in Argentina since 1992 with the initial aim of producing a wine for the Argentine market, Jacques and Francois soon developed a broader strategy. In 1996, they set up their own bodega in the Uco Valley, captivated by the quality of the terroir, virgin land set at high altitudes, the excellent climate, and the presence of underground water."
"Argentina is the oldest country in the New World. It is a country where winegrowing is rooted in the national traditions and where vines have existed for centuries. The wines Francois produces here are a perfect reflection of the country: full of contrast, color, and wonderfully expressive." -Winery
