Crios Torrontes 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

Another option for a full bodied white wine. Great choice for turkey. If you like chardonnay, sauvignon blanc or viognier you will like torrontes.

This wine is boldly floral. It's a perfect wine for white fish or shellfish. It will stand up to a little spice or umami from capers and mushrooms.

This is tart and pleasing. I recommend it with dishes involving white fish, scallops or shrimps. The brightness of this wine will cut any rich sauce that might attend your meal, and it is a pleasing accompaniment to seafood that is singing a capella as well.

I love it, really interesting wine. Floral & Sweet with enough acidity that it's not cloying but wonderful and complex.

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)

Pale, bright silver-yellow color. Highly perfumed aromas of lemon drop, white flowers, peppermint and white pepper. Supple, pliant and easygoing, with citrus, herbal and floral flavors joined by a hint of licorice. Shows a touch of heat on the finish. Offers good weight in the mouth but seems less intense than the 2011. Susana Balbo declassified a lot of fruit in the difficult 2012 harvest, making this wine mostly from Mendoza vines planted to the Salta clone of torrontes, as she finds the Mendoza clone’s flavors too fleeting.

.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.

Fine wines that blend grapes from three provinces aren’t common in Argentina, and they’re even less common for export. This one has a blend of tropical flavors coming through in the bouquet, including pineapple and mango. In the mouth the wine is more tart and a touch bitter at the end, but rich and pleasurable overall. José Lovaglio, who has taken over as winemaker from his mother Susana Balbo, is off to a good start!

The 2012 Crios Torrontes comes from Cafayate in Salta, Altamira and La Rioja from 33-year-old vines. It has much more presence and vivacity than the Chardonnay, with scents of lime, peach and melon that are well-defined. The palate is well-balanced with a prickle of white pepper on the entry. It displays moderate length in the mouth, while the finish is crisp and taut. with notes of pear, bruised apple and dried orange peel. This is worth seeking out for the price. Drink now–2014.

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.

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.

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.
