Natalie's Score: 90/100

Susana Balbo is one of Argentina’s best winemakers, whether it's this vibrant, floral white wine made from Torrontes or her classic red wines. This is made from 100% Torrontes grapes grown in the Cafayete and Uco Valley regions and planted at different altitudes. Aromas of honeydew, apple blossom, peach and lime. The wine is aged 3 months sur-lie to add body. Light and crisp and mouth-watering. Pair with seafood.

Torrontés food pairings: seafood, salad.

Bright dry and crisp. Peach and tropical fruits. Very refreshing with surprisingly pleasant body and a longer finish than expected.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
