Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lovely lifted white floral notes embrace a profusion of peach and pear in the core. Light as an aperitif, but also aromatic enough to pair with mild and medium curries. Terrific.

Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Torrontes is a hidden gem of a grape varietal because of price but also because of its easy drink-ability. Although some can be watery, not this one. Cuma delivers a nose reminiscent of walking into a flower shop, and a palate of lip smacking fruit, the finish is also very well balanced. I didn't get to taste this wine with any food, but it certainly can stand up on its own, I think it would be great with a Jamaican Jerk Chicken dish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
