Alta Vista Torrontes Premium 2017

External Review:

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.

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)

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.

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

Alta Vista Premium 2007 Torrontes To me, Torrontes has characteristics of a blend of both Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. As soon as you pop the cork, your nose fills with floral aromas, stone fruits and exotic scents -- brilliant. Torrontes is still a dry-styled white wine that has a slight creamy mouthfeel and nice acidity levels that make it a perfect pairing with light or delicate fare. Alta Vista, from the French Edonia family wine group, has the pleasure to introduce Argentinean wines which express the true typicity of its varietals and terroirs. The quality Premium is the fruit of our expertise of adapting to each varietal our knowledge and experience of viticulture, winemaking and aging in order to enhance its own expression. This Torrontes grows in the Northern part of the Argentina Andes mountains at 5,400 feet above sea level as Premium Torrontes requires between 45-46 degrees F. This wine is a natural product of Argentina.
