Natalie's Score: 90/100

White floral aromas and a profusion of peach-pear happiness on the nose of this Argentine white wine. Try this wine made from the lesser-known Torrontes grape if you haven't and open your world to more happiness. The grapes are grown in Argentina’s Salta region. Finishes with white peach and lime blossom. Pair with mild to medium spicy dishes and curries.

Torrontés food pairings: lobster salad with Meyer lemon and grilled asparagus.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Something pretty always hits me with Torrontes. This delicate floral white wine from Argentina is no exception. Grown at 1700 metres above sea level this light-bodied easy sipping wine is a bouquet of fresh picked flowers, ripe peach and pear, apricot, citrus, and refreshing acidity that preps you for more! Easily sipped on it's own or with seafood, shellfish, fresh flower salad. Serve well chilled.
Tasted: May 2015
Argentina's iconic Torrontes grape produces vibrant white wines. If you love Viognier or Gewurztraminer, try this wine. Finishes with lychee and pear blossom. - Community Wine Reviews
