3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The northern reaches of Argentina feature majestic landscapes that carry the legacy of an ancient Incan empire. In honor of those original inhabitants, Bodega Tukma was named after the Incan word for chief. Located in the Valle de Calchaquies between Salta and Tucuman, both estate vineyards are located at unusually high elevations. Los Tolombones is situated at 5,578 feet above sea level and Los Angastacos at 6,529 feet above sea level. The extreme temperature fluctuations (sometimes as much as 50 degrees from day to evening) results in fruit with concentrated flavors, thick skins and well-developed tannins. The wines are produced by long-time winemaker and Torrontes specialist, Jose Luis Mounier.

Tasting notes
The color is a delicate clear yellow with varietal aromas of lychee, grapefruit, tropical fruits and rose petals. The palate surprises with a burst of juicy acidity.

Technical notes
Named in honor of the region's Incan chief, this estate is considered one of the foremost producers of terroir-driven, traditionally made wines. Winemaker Jose Luis Mounier specializes in crafting a Torrentes that balances the varietal's natural, floral and peach aromatics with nuanced minerality.
