Disappointing. Great bouquet - floral and mineral. But can't get past the bitter/sour taste and aftertaste. Read more

This wine has soft peach with a hint of armpit in the nose, but don’t be put off – the wine shows more intensity and complexity than your usual torrontes, with a spicy center surrounded by viscous honey. (AV 88, http://argovino.com/?p=814)

Pale bright straw-yellow. White flowers and a whiff of curry powder on the nose. Supple tactile and lightly saline with a distinctly elegant quality to the subtle tropical fruit and ginger flavors. Bright harmonious acidity carries the sappy spicy finish. Serious torrontes with excellent texture and depth. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A floral white, displaying a mix of juicy orange, nectarine, spice and acacia flower notes that lead to the broad finish. Drink now.

Sweet, tropical aromas lead the way, followed by notes of melon and vanilla. It feels fresh, with citrus and lychee flavors. The finish is tropical and green tasting, with nervy acidity.

With a bright yellow color and delicate floral aromas, this wine excites the senses with its freshness and liveliness. We suggest serving it between 7C (44F) and 8C (46F).

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes was harvested via three passes through the vineyard in Cafayate and such exacting standards show in this great wine. It has a boisterous, quasi-Gewurztraminer bouquet of lemon zest, barley sugar and apricot that leaps out of the glass. The palate is well-balanced with peach and elderflower on the entry, and expresses the varietal with some style. This is an effervescent, somehow life-affirming white wine...90" WA 10/12 "A floral white, displaying a mix of juicy orange, nectarine, spice and acacia flower notes that lead to the broad finish...."
