A fragrant Torrontes with soft orange, pear, ripe apple and spicy aromas on the nose. Medium-bodied and ripe stone fruit and clementine flavours on the palate matched by amazing acidity. Great now. Pair with fish tacos and stir-fry tofu dishes.

Torrontés food pairings: crab cakes, fish tacos, shrimp cocktail.

Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fantastic value for a full bouquet in the glass. White flowers like lilies plus tropical notes with a seductive musk character. The palate is clean with a delicate dryness with a clean finish made more attractive by the balanced acidity. Medium in body with nectarine notes and a sophisticated minerality. This wine punches above its weight. Try with a delicate butter chicken curry @wrightwineblog
Kaiken Terroir Series 2018 Torrontés is fragrant on the nose with clementine, lime zest and candied pear aromas. More on the palate on this medium-bodied white from Cafayate Valley, Salta with bright acidity for food. Pair with grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews
