The family business Bodegas Bórbore was founded in 1936, to the east of the capital of San Juan. The winery located in the Tulum Valley owns 325ha of vineyards distributed over five sites in the delimited San Juan region, the rising star in Argentine winemaking. The winery uses state-of-the-art technology in each of the processes of production, to guarantee the maximum expression of the attributes of each variety.
A blend of Chenin Blanc with Torrontés, an indigenous Argentinie white grape variety. The floral bouquet has alluring white peach and lemongrass aromas on the nose. The palate is dry yet aromatic with notes of green apple, lemon, peach, mango and lychee, with an undertone of herbaceous flavours in the mid-palate. A light and fruity wine, it is perfectly balanced by the natural crisp acidity of Chenin Blanc
This is a very classy wine indeed. Ideal on its own, or with light dishes and salads and having seen its inclusion on many Chinese restaurant menus, will also complement Asian dishes.
Its restaurant price would indicate a retail of around £8, though we did see it on another internet wine seller at an incredible £11.99 - it's amazing what some outlets charge!
At Binendwines this is now just £4.95.
