The Calchaquí Valley in Northwest Argentina is characterized by fertile
soil, a dry climate, warm days and cool evenings. At 6,400 feet above sea
level, the vineyards are among the highest in the world. It is here that Finca
La Buena creates the Baguala wines. Following time-honored traditions,
Finca La Buena’s grapes are hand pruned, picked and sorted. Torrontés is
the signature grape of the region.
Tasting Notes:”Yellow-greenish in color. Crisp and refreshing on the palate with notes of apricot and citrus and undertones of minerals.”
Finca La Buena oenologist/winemaker, Sebastian Saravia began making
wines in this highland valley in the Andean northwest over a decade ago.
Sebastian has a degree from the National University of Salta and has studied
viticulture in some of the important wine regions of the world including
Napa, Sonoma, Medoc, Pomerol and Souter. Sebastian believes a fine wine
reflects the growing region as well as the quality and handling of the grapes.
The young, crisp and refreshing Baguala Torrontés does just that.
