Classic Torrontes aromatics, this is all about lemon blossom, a touch of sage and a big core of lemon drop candy. In the mouth it's big and rich but a touch sweet which makes it seem a bit ponderous. This really needs to be served chilled and is an attractive cocktail wine. 85pts

    90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Torrontes is about as good as this varietal gets. Super fragrant smelling of a spring flower garden honey and exotic spices from the nose one expects the wine to be sweet. On the palate however it is dry with a creamy texture intense flavors excellent acidity and a lengthy finish. It is an ideal alternative for rich courses normally calling for Chardonnay.

    Exotic, aromatic, rich, complex, and deep, this wine shows a surprising side of Torrontés. Beautiful floral notes are accompanied by honeysuckle, citrus and apple aromas, and are followed up by impressive balance and great length. This white goes perfectly with rich, saucy seafood dishes.

    The 2007 Torrontes is about as good as this varietal gets. Super fragrant, smelling of a spring flower garden, honey, and exotic spices, from the nose one expects the wine to be sweet. On the palate, however, it is dry with a creamy texture, intense flavors, excellent acidity, and a lengthy finish. It is an ideal alternative for rich courses normally calling for Chardonnay. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.

    Enticing aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has mouthwatering acidity that keeps you coming back for another sip and plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry, this wine has to be tasted to be believed. Best enjoyed in its youth either by itself, or as a wonderful partner with smoked meats, mild to medium-strong cheeses, and seafood. Keep one in the fridge at all times! Crios de Susana Balbo, Torrontes 100% Torrontes (most widely planted white wine grape in Argentina). Hand harvested.Production: 15,000 cases
