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."

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.

Torrontes thrives in the high altitudes of Cafayate, where some vineyards rise over 6,000 feet. This Crios is one of the best examples, packed with scents of caramelized lime and honey. The ripe peach flavor creates a silky, almost creamy texture balanced by a crisp, firm acidity and a dry finish.

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

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.

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

Perfumed aromas of peach nectar and flowers. Juicy, pure and intense, with lovely floral perfume and bright framing acidity. A bit viogner-like in its floral complexity. Finishes juicy and long, and not a bit heavy. This is the #1 torrontes imported from Argentina and virtually never misses.

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.
