Natalie's Score: 93/100
This Torrontes is an exemplar of its kind: it gets better every year. Argentine winemaker Susana Balbo seems to have the golden touch when it comes to a wide range of styles and wines, from this delightful floral white wine to her more robust Malbecs. Gorgeous notes of white flowers, light spice and spring rain. Pair with salads and mild curries or spices.
Torrontés food pairings: mild vegetarian curries, sushi, salads topped with grilled mango chicken.
Splendid Salad Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Wow what a great! Finely fermented for 4 months in French oak. A very pretty glistening water white colour with a silvery rim showing a gorgeously evolving bouquet of pink pears cantaloupe, mandarin oranges dragon fruit, fresh coconut and an abundant floral foray featuring, honeysuckle, white peonies and orchid blossoms. Flavours are bright and lively with pink grapefruit citrus, green apples skins, delicate sandy minerals, and notes of fresh parsley. High, well balanced brisk acidity. Pair with chicken and veggie kebabs. 91 points
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Honeydew aromas with hints of pine, mint, lime and honey. On the palate, we have citrus flavours, predominantly lime, and herbal notes. It is wonderfully crisp and tart.

Tasted March 24th, 2018. Colour clear brilliant water white. Legs medium minus. Aromas and flavours of exotic fruit, flowers, fresh green melon. Taste dry, aromatic, mouthwatering, exotic fruit and a nice medium plus finish. Just a delicious wine. I drank with the following rice bowl mixture. Italian chicken breast strips, jasmine rice, fresh boiled green beans, chopped fresh green onions and soya sauce and Nuoc Cham sauce. The wine pairing was wonderful. Highly recommend if you enjoy adventure and exotic taste.
|From Finca La Delfina in the Altamira, Uco Valley, Mendoza Susana Balbo Signature 2016 is a floral Torrontés with notes of soft spice and wet stone. This Torrontes is bone dry, zesty and as light as a feather with grassy notes, white flowers, white grapefruit and melon flavours on the palate. Pair with freshly grilled shellfish dishes. - Community Wine Reviews|
