Crios Torrontes 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Dominio del Plata is a family-owned and run project of Susana Balbo (Enologist) and Pedro Marchevsky (Viticulturist). The core philosophies that they share, and that figure prominently in the production of their wines, are the following: Precision Viticulture This is a grape-growing philosophy that demands attention to detail, however small. The planting of the vineyards, varietal selections, vineyard management systems, water management, canopy conduction, sanitary precautions and harvesting decision are all managed personally by Pedro and Susana in order to achieve the highest quality standards. Sustainable Agriculture The entire project is specially designed and implemented in a way that doesn’t harm the natural resources, preserves the environment, functions according to social requirements, and at the same time maintains productivity in order to remain economically competitive. Superior Winemaking Skills Our winemaking skills and professional knowledge have been developed over more than two decades through intensive and prolonged education and research. From this accumulated knowledge, we have designed and constructed a winery that employs state-of-the-art enological technology for the processing of grapes and therefore the production of high-quality wine. Love and Passion Knowledge and experience are not the only keys to successful winemaking. Every step of top-quality wine production demands a love and a passion for the winemaking process in order to obtain a successful result. The dedication and diligence of our entire family working in the vineyard, in the winery and for the marketing of the wines gives the company its unique character. The constant search for perfection and the appreciation for fine wine, as well as our relationships with the people that contribute to the success of the winery, is physically embodied in the beauty of the Dominio del Plata Winery.

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

Lovely notes of lily and jasmine with a bit of sweet spice. Great wine to start an evening!

Spicy nose. A really oily powerful white. Lemon, lime and citrus acidity balanced by some sweet florals with a honeyed edge.

    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

    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.
