Signature super fragrant bouquet of a meadow of fresh flowers, honey and tropical fruits. Pretty dry on the palate. Ample fruit on a vibrant acidity and a long finish. Delightful and a great wine given the warm weather is here! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/1/10

Floral and citrus aromas. Dry and crisp like a Sauv Blanc.

This is a perfect wine in the summer. We first tried it in 2008 and supplied our wedding with this one as our white and it was long gone before the reception was over. All I heard all night was "I tried the red, but oh, you have to try the white."

Indeed Floral aromas llike honeysuckle and star jasmine mixed with tropical citrus notes. Delicious white fruit in the mid palate and wonderfull acidity with a lingering finish. A super food wine.

Bright and tangy, with a nice mix of grapefruit rind, tangerine and chamomile notes that stay fresh on the finish.

External Review

Crisp and refreshing, with notes of citrus, spice, and bright fruit. We even noticed a bit of mint creeping in. The body is perfect, not too heavy but not too thin. An exciting wine and an exceptional value.

External Review

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.

External Review

Some Mendoza Torrontes in the blend; fragrant, dry, mouth-filling, the prototype Torrontes.

External Review

Pale color. Pungent aromas of citrus peel, ginger, mint and floral oils. Juicy, spicy and firm, with a lively lightness and good subtle persistence. Finishes vibrant and firm-edged, almost austere but not at all bitter. An excellent example of this variety, and a perfect aperitif. This tastes even drier than its five grams of r.s. would suggest.

External Review

This zesty white features notes of fennel-accented clementine and peach, as hints of white flower fill the finish. Drink now.

External Review

Susana Balbo consistently delivers refined, clean torrontés like this 2007, a white filled with ripe melon and honey scents. The deep flavors surround sweet peach with spice in a creamy texture. The finish is refreshing. A match for crabmeat and pork soup dumplings.
