Bodega Colome Torrontes Argentina Salta Randle Johnson 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The most popular white wine from Argentina, the Torrontés grape is a cross of Muscat of Alexandria and the Mission Grape of Galacia. Grown on the traditional Parral System, Colomé Torrontés is highly distinctive with its muscat character - always refreshing, never cloying. The wine exhibits a high fruit nose with muscat and tropical notes that lead to a rich mid-palate and clean, crisp finish. Serve lightly chilled. The perfect match for risotto and sea food or grilled shellfish, and of course, sushi.

Colome was farmed for thousand of years by the native population who were excellent stewards of the land. The original Indio language in Ihe Cakhaqul Valley was "Kakan"; but at the end of the 15th century the Incas entered the valley. Since then, the dialect spoken in the valley has been "Quechua". In 1549, Calchaqui Valley was first occupied by the Spanish conquistadores but they encountered stiff resistance from the native population. 90 years later the Spanish succeeded expropriating the native population. As the tale goes, the native tribe chief Colomln received vines from the Spanish conquistadores in the late 16th century for good services rendered. The old Colomi winery was founded in 1831. probably by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolas Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. His daughter Ascencion, who married Jose Benjamin Davalos, introduced in 1854 from France pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon wines to Colome. Three vineyards of 10 acres/ 4 hectares, dating from this time still produce grapes. Colome is considered the oldest existing winery in Argentina. Read less

Bright golden-green hue, big aromas of citrus, cut flowers and honeysuckle; broad flavor notes racy stone fruits and citrus, wet stones and orange honey over a moderately long, clean finish.

Brillantes Goldgelb. Frische, blumige Note, erinnert zudem an Honig und Rosen, im Hintergrund Zitronen und Grapefruit. Die Aromen bestätigen sich auf dem Gaumen. Der Wein zeigt eine reiche Fülle. Anhaltend.
