Louis-Antoine Luyt Gordo Blanco NV Review – An Unusual Wine

If you are in the mood for an unusual wine that is fermented naturally and unfiltered, the Louis-Antoine Luyt Gordo Blanco from Chile is for you.

First off, this wine is a blend of Muscat of Alexandria, Torrontes, Semillon, and Chasselas- a pretty unique combination we've seen come out of South America. Second, the natural fermentation, skin on, and no filtering make for a very intriguing offering all around.

Bodega Uvairenda 1750 Torrontes 2018 Review – A Mellow Torrontes

We absolutely adore the varietal Torrontes as grown in South America, and when we found a winery producing it in Bolivia of all places, Bodega Uvairenda, we knew we had to pick up a bottle.

The 1750 Torrontes here is grown at a relatively high altitude (above 5,000 feet) and is blended with about 15% of other grapes including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pedro Gimenez. Together, this wine ends up being a bit more mellow than what you'd typically expect for this otherwise potent varietal.
