Natalie's Score: 90/100

So lovely and aromatic with great florals on the nose: almost perfumed with peach, honey blossom aromas. This wine has a touch of new oak for complexity. Roses and orange blossom bloom in the mouth, then swell to a crescendo on the finish.Pair with mild to medium curries and spices.

Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Freshly cut grass, citrus, a hit of lime mid-palate, and a lingering crisp citrus finish.
Wonderful with white fish, or summer salads. 89 pts.
Tasted June 2017.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lively and acidic. Generous aromas and flavours of lemon, citrus peel and honeysuckle. Some minerality on the finish. Pair with grilled lobster and garlic butter.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale straw with slight green hue. This Argentinian torrentes shows brilliant and bright. Tart, zesty lime, green melon, a hint of grapefruit pith and savoury herb. Refreshing with a medium plus finish and persistence of lime zest and green melon. Approachable, affordable, good value. Tasted May 2017. 87 points.
