Food Pairings for Crios Torrontes
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.
External Reviews for Crios Torrontes
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.
Susana Balbo consistently delivers delicate and elegant torronteacute;s --- a variety that is often rustic, if not astringent. This winersquo;s seductive scent of flowers and white peaches lifts the creamy texture. Itrsquo;s a refreshing aperitif.
The 2009 Torrontes remains one of Argentinarsquo;s benchmarks for this variety. Sourced from 31-year-old vines in Cafayate (where the finest Torrontes grows), it displays a fragrant bouquet of spring flowers, honey, and tropical aromas. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, it has ample fruit backed by vibrant acidity leading to a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next 2 years.
This brilliant portfolio begins with the medium straw-colored 2008 Torrontes. It offers up an alluring perfume of spring flowers, peach, apricot, and a hint of citrus. On the palate the wine is dry, smooth textured, layered, and succulent while retaining a sense of elegance. This nicely balanced wine features a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next 1ndash;2 years.
This zesty white features notes of fennel-accented clementine and peach, as hints of white flower fill the finish. Drink now.
Enticing aromas of orange blossom, peach, licorice, mint and white flowers. Juicy, spicy and firm, with lovely inner-mouth floral perfume to the peach and lichee flavors. A slight phenolic quality gives the wine grip without bitterness. Comes across as dry not austere, thanks to a few grams of residual sugar. Should make a lovely aperitif.
Enticing aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, white pear, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity 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.
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.
