Pisco Portón has announces its newest expression: La Caravedo Torontel.
La Caravedo Torontel is a pisco puro, meaning it is made from a single varietal of the eight grape varietals allowed by Peruvian law to make pisco. La Caravedo Torontel is made from the torontel grape, which is an aromatic varietal that evolved on the Peruvian coast and provides a strong floral bouquet and velvety texture, the company says.
This new addition is produced by Pisco Portón’s Master Distiller Johnny Schuler at the company’s distillery, Hacienda La Caravedo, located in Ica, Peru.
La Caravedo Torontel brings bright, delicate flavors, rich texture, and a heady aromatic experience to a cocktail, the company says. It is distilled in Hacienda La Caravedo’s original falca stills, and there are 8 pounds of grapes in every bottle.
This pisco is 80 proof, and upon the palate has the flavors of a floral bouquet of rose, gardenia, and violet, the company says. Aromas include citrus and peach.
La Caravedo Torontel is available in limited release throughout all U.S. markets, with a suggested retail price of $32.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
