About This Wine
Zolo farms vineyards in several key areas of Argentina’s Mendoza region.
And since owner and president Patricia Ortiz makes it a point to spend as much time as possible in those vineyards, her husband is left alone in Buenos Aires for much of the week. That’s the story behind the Zolo label — Zolo, as in solo.
Well, Mr. Ortiz’s loss is our gain, because having multiple vineyard sources provides winemaker Fabian Valenzuela with a wide array of “tools” and “materials” for crafting exceptional wines — wines like the 2011 Zolo Torrontes.
In recent years, Torrontes has emerged as the white wine star of Argentina, just as Malbec has become the most acclaimed red. There’s a lot to like about Torrontes, from its enticing floral aroma (think: spring flowers) to its smooth texture in the mouth to its abundant fruit flavors. The 2011 vintage is everything one could want from a bottle of Torrontes — a true benchmark wine.
