Susana Balbo is the unofficial first lady of Argentinian wine and this is made by her at her Dominio del Plata winery located in the heart of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. After many years working for other wineries (including Michael Torina and Catena) Susana was able to realise here dream of owning her own winery when construction began on the Dominio del Plata winery in 1999. After having worked in the wine industray for over 30 years, Susana Balbo is a true icon of Argentinian wine – the first lady to become a winemaker in Argentina, she was also president of Wines of Argentina (WOFA) three times (2006-2008, 2008-2010 and 2014-2016) and assumed the position of Vice President from 2010-2012! Today both her son, Joseph, a winemaker who studied at the University of UC Davis (California) and daughter Ana have joined the family business. The winery, with its modern technology and equipment, in combination with “precision” viticulture and sustainable agriculture produces very high quality wines. The grapes for the Susana Balbo Signature Series Barrel Fermented Torrontes are sourced from Balbo’s Finca La Delfina vineyard located in Altamira, Uco Valley. Torrontes wine are not usually barrel-fermented and it has taken a bit trial and error to get to the perfect amount of oak ageing. Made in only very limited quantities, the grapes for this wine are hand-harvested, destemmed and macerated for 6 hours at 6C before a gentle pressing. The juice is then fermented for three months in medium-toast French oak barrels.
