90 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - Good density and an almost sauvignon-like tang to the flavors of minerals, ginger and flowers.
Yellow with low intensity, green touches, very intense aroma, rose and fresh grape's fruit are the most distinctive descriptors of this Torrontes, very sweet entrance and aromatic in the mouth with a great balance.
We enjoy it with Ceviche, Fresh Fish, Grilled Chicken and spicy dishes.
Reviews and other Notes
90 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (ST) Very pale yellow. Intriguing aromas of lemon, minerals, menthol and white pepper; reminded me a bit of gruner veltliner. Then tactile and supple but dry, with good density and an almost sauvignon-like tang to the flavors of minerals, ginger and flowers. Should make a very flexible wine at the dinner table. This is made from the more minerally Mendocino clone of torrontes, not the Salta clone.
Torrontés is Argentina’s signature white wine varietal. It flourishes in the province of Salta and in the plains of Mendoza. There are several clones of Torrontés. We decided to plant the Medocino clone which is best suited for our climate and soils. The grapes are fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve its lively fruit acidity and floral bouquet.
