Gran Lurton, White Blend
A complex nose of orchard fruits (white peach, pear & apple) & white flowers with lemon curd & citrus notes, muddled with almond, hazelnuts & vanilla pod.
A rich & buttery mouth nutty complexity & bright fruit. This is one of the most exciting white blends in Argentina to date.
Creamy white pasta, chicken, light pork dishes & white fish: a very pair-able wine.
13.5% alcohol, 2015 harvest
Winery sample, no decanting.
More on the wine
A blend of Tokaij Fruilano (Sauvignon Vert), Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc, this is a highly original blend and perhaps one of the wines that Lurton does best in Argentina. Coming from the Uco Valley from their estate near the winery, the blend is made after individual fermentations of the different varieties.
More on the producer
Francois Lurton is a renowned French winemaker, but also one of the best known winemakers in the world. He first came to Argentina invited by Catena Zapata as a consultant, and after falling in love with the potential of Argentina (and Chile) he set up his own winery and production in both Argentina and Chile. Lurton frequently travels to each wine producing country, but it is his day to day winemakers at the winery that look after each harvest as it comes.
