Offers luxurious lychee aromas and mouth-filling citrus flavors with an acidic but not overpowering bite – a fine representation of Argentina’s indigenous white. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=176)

Although fairly new to the Torrontes varietal, I have tasted 20+ of them, and I must say that this is my favorite. If you aren't familiar, Torrontes are like a mix between Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc. This has a floral nose, with hints of honey-dew, citrus and a little spice. It has flavors of peach, tangerine and honey that are accompanied with mouth-watering acidity (much like a Sauv Blanc, with Viognier flavors). The finish is refreshing and tangy, should go great fatty fish.

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.

Der Wein zeigt eine klare hellgelbe Farbe mit leichtem Grünton. In der Nase dominieren exotische Fruchtaromen von Lychee, Pfirsich, Grapefruits & erfrischender Ananas, neben floralen Noten.Angenehme, erfrischende, leicht mineralische Säure. Fruchtbetonter Spasswein mit mittellangem Abgang.

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 12ndash;18 months.

Susana Balbo consistently delivers refined, clean torronteacute;s 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.

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.

.On the palate, it has beautiful structure and acidity similar to Sauvignon Blanc along with enticing fruit flavors that keep you coming back for another sip and plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors.

Good pale yellow. Sexy, almost gewurztraminer-like aromas of licorice, wild herbs, flowers and mint are at once bright and exotic. Juicy, saline and dry but with noteworthy texture and intensity to the ripe flavors of lavender, verbena and botanical herbs. Nothing austere about this serious, soil-driven torrontes. Finishes tactile and persistent, with a lightly saline quality.
