Stewart Davis rated this wine as 90/100
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This approachable Argentinean tips the scales in your favour in terms of price point. It is a pale straw yellow gem that offers honeyed orange blossoms and ripe peach. The palate is unctuous, honeyed, peachy and floral. It has a beautiful mouth feel to match its substantial body, with medium acidity and a long finish. A pleasure to sip.

I would pair this with fresh pork dumplings.

Carola Price rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Extremely floral and typical Torrontes aromas with almost none of the New World Chardonnay that permeats a nose. Once you drink it though the Torrontes dissapears and you are left with well made super clean Chardonnay with pineapple, peach and kaffir lime. The finish is long and well balanced and the floral tones comes back at the end. A delicious treat made for medium bodied fish with fresh herbs. A real treat that is made for the short term however I would be super interested in seeing the development in 4 years time.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a great value wine with vibrant floral notes, orange blossom and ripe fruit with minerality of canned mandarin oranges. Offering a unique balance of cool climate Mendoza Argentinian fruit.

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is an interesting blend of chardonnary and torrontes. Orange, lemon, and green apple on the palate. It's got nice oak characteristics as well, like smoke and vanilla. The torrontes lends it a lovely floral flavour. Long apple and oaky finish.
Colin McKone rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nice aromas of fresh bread, green apple and white flowers with tart green apple & buttery flavours. Will pair well with chicken dishes.

Natalie's Review

Trapiche Extravaganza Torrentes Chardonnay 2015, Mendoza, Argentina: A lovely Argentine white wine blend of Torrontes and Chardonnay grapes. Torrontes add pretty white floral notes while Chardonnay brings richness and baked bread aromas. Perfect for grilled chicken or seafood.
