Natalie's Score: 89/100

Gorgeous floral aromatics on this organic wine has just 8 mg/l of free sulphur. Medium- to almost full-bodied with mouth-watering acidity for seafood and grilled chicken. Some white peach on the finish. Lovely, especially for the price.

Torrontés food pairings: sushi, Thai noodles in a light lemongrass sauce, crab cakes.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A delightful clean white wine from Argentina’s signature grape, Torrontes. Pale lemon colour, lots of floral notes, ripe apple, yellow pear, banana, passion fruit, honeysuckle and honeydew melon. Flavours are crisp with apple, white pepper, clay, wet stones, snow pea and pineapple. High acidity, medium minus body and finish with some peppermint lingering. Good pairing for herbed Gouda cheese, butternut squash and chicken satay. 89 points - December 2017
From the Mendoza wine region, Santa Julia (2016) is a great value, zesty Torrontés with a pronounced nose of white flowers, lemon custard and clementines. On the palate the dry white is crisp with lemon and lime zest and orange blossom and ripe stonefruit flavours. This is a drink-now white to sip on its own or pair with seafood hors d'oeuvres. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
