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.

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.
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.
The nose is ripe and clean with good definition: blackberry, bilberry and a touch of cedar. The palate is ripe on the entry with smoky dark fruit, nice weight and delineation with good persistency on the finish. Very well crafted Mon. Janoueix! Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Its classical style expresses the character, nobility and concentration of the grapes which have had a long history in Chile. Prize-winners year by year, it has been ranked three times in the prestigious ranking of the Top 100 Wines of the Year, by Wine Spectator.
This is pure Mouton. The aromas to this wine are so fabulous. I thought right away back to the 1947, one of the great classics of Mouton. Menthol, minty, light eucalyptus, currants and dark fruits on the nose. Full bodied, with super intense and powe... James Suckling.
