Natalie's Score: 90/100

Gorgeous blend of chardonnay and torrontes: the first contributes the richness, toast and hazelnut aromas; the second gives a floral lift. Lovely. Amazingly great price.

Holly Bruns rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ripe tree fruit, like apple and peach on the nose with some jasmine and nutmeg notes that get enlivened with a little minerality and citrus. A pleasant round feeling on the palate with a spicy, tingly finish. This white is on the rich side and would make a great afternoon sipping wine.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This wine is complex with bursts of citrus flavour and a hint of spice. Some peach notes with good acidity. I look forward to having this wine again.
sit. sip. savour. rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

aromas of sweet ripe fruit, floral, mineral & spice (reminding me of ginger ale, oddly enough). the medium plus finish replays aromas in this smooth-textured friulano.
François Lurton was delighted to discover the virtues of the old-vine Friulano grown in Mendoza. Here he blends this northern Italian variety with small amounts of Chardonnay and Torrontés to make a full-bodied, aromatic wine with nutty notes on the nose and palate. Layered and balanced with a crisp, lengthy finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel
