This wine was described as a vinho verde, which it is NOT. It is very inexpensive and delicious. The server was kind enough to write down the name of the bottle -- very good with fish and excellent alone.

With a certain legerdemain, Torronteacute;s misdirects you like a good magician. Like its pal Viognier, one whiff and you know itrsquo;s going to be sweet, but one sip (nothing up my sleeve) and you find that itrsquo;s completely dry, with mouthcoating flavors of peach, nectarine, pear, lychee and honey. Its texture is smooth, with a viscosity that may remind one of peach nectar or 20W-50. Where these wines invariably fall down, however, is the finish. Without enough acidity, the flavors fall flat and fade. But the Jelu has a secret ingredient. With a small dose of Chenin Blanc (the grape of Vouvray and Saumur), its inherently crisp acidic structure gives a luminosity to the Torronteacute;s that elevates the flavors from beginning to end. It is the best Torronteacute;s I have tasted, sleight-of-hands down.

Rose and Duncan Killner, owners of Jelu Estate, created this wine to promote the unique terrior of the Zonda Valley of Argentina. The property is in a box canyon, sitting on an old river bed, and the soil is alluvial. In 2012, Argentina exported more than 231,000 cases of Torronteacute;s to the United States. The wine is light yellow and very aromatic with pear, peach, mango, almond and floral notes. This medium-bodied, crisp, clean, juicy wine is well balanced with good acidity and lemon and pear accents. The finish is long and tangy. Enjoy this wonderful wine with grilled fish, roast chicken or cheese souffleacute;.

Violet red in the glass; flavors of herbs, berries and pepper are apparent in the palate. The wine is soft, medium-bodied, rounded and harmonic with a persistent finish. Very smooth, this affordable sipper provides forward fruit and easy drinkability, while a touch of Carmeacute;negrave;re offers structure and longevity.

A plush Merlot, with a nice core of plum flavors and a good herbal edge. Finishes on a slightly sweet note. Drink now through 1999.

The Jelu vineyards are farmed organically and everything there is done by hand. This wonderful Torronteacute;s expresses aromas of honeysuckle and lychee. Flavors of Meyer lemon and white peach interact with layers of tropical fruit. Imagine a wine that is a cross between Gewuuml;rztraminer and Riesling! Plenty of body combines with bright acidity to excite onersquo;s palate. Serve this wine with a mixed green salad with goat cheese, caramelized pecans, fresh pears and Dijon balsamic vinaigrette.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red in color with a bouquet brimming with intense aromas of plums, morello cherries, chocolate and cassis. Well-structured on the palate, with concentrated flavors of red fruit and sweet tannins.
