Carnavalito Wine – Torrontes
DAVALOS VINYARDS – Carnavalito Wine – Torrontes (White)
Innermost. There is no more appropriate
word to define Tacuil, amazing place nestled in the Calchaquí Valley,
specifically in Molinos, Salta. There, inland, the Dávalos family
discovered a suitable area for extreme winemaking and an astonishing
terroir for the production of high altitude wines.
began long ago: the family history tied to the vines dates back to the
mid 1800s, when Ascensión Isasmendi of Dávalos, founder of the oldest
winery in the country, introduced the first foreign grapevines into the
valley, changing the Calchaquí landscape forever.
adapted to the new conditions imposed by the soil and climate of Salta,
and evolved favorably with the native grape. The descendants of Doña
Ascensión continued caring for the vineyards over the years and forged
what is now a tradition.
Raúl Dávalos Goytia, the fifth
generation of wine-makers, was no stranger to this passion of his
ancestors. In 1982, he decided to settle in the valley and take on the
management of the winery himself.
With a defiant disposition,
Raul focused his philosophy on the concept of terroir and took even
further his commitment to reject oak aging, claiming that Tacuil wines
should demonstrate the originality of its grapes in its purest state,
without the classical influence of wood. Moreover, he was a pioneer in
the altitude winemaking, which distinguishes the products of the high
valley of Salta.
And said elaboration philosophy is the one that this sixth generation of wine-maker family of Salta has inherited.
