O 'FOURNIER URBAN 2013 TORRONTES

The Torrontes grape produces brighter more precise wines at the highest possible elevations, so like many Uco Valley producers, O Fournier turns to Salta and its highest sub-zone Cafayate at 6,000 feet above sea level. Jose Manuel is obsessed with finding the coolest sub-zones within an appellation in pursuit of brighter acidity, more precise balance, and layered aromatics.

José Manuel Ortega Gil-Fournier from O. Fournier seems to be just about everywhere in the Spanish speaking world. He is one of those huge personalities animated by ideas and passion. José-Manuel owns 3 wineries in 3 countries, but also owns one of the most highly regarded restaurants in Argentina where his wife is the chef; he makes fantastic value wines with the “Urban” tier of each property, but also makes some of the most highly regarded top-end wines from the same vineyard sites. The ambition at O Fournier seems endless. We think the wines are compelling. This collection of “Urban” wines nicely shows the value side from all three estates; the Uco Valley property in Argentina, the Ribera del Duero property in Spain, and the Maule Valley estate in Chile. There is immediate drink ability and polish to these wines, but they are more than simple quaffers. There are layers of aromatics and minerality beyond the fruit—easy pleasure and refinement in the same glass.
