Deep rose color, almost strawberry. Flinty nose with cherry and strawberry notes. Soft attack, cherries and some earthiness. Heavy tannins for a rose - nice sustained finish as a result. A bit of an alcohol imbalance. But nice for the price.

Not a bad drinker, but there are better-tasting roses in this price range, to be sure. Definitely pair this with food (preferably spicy!), otherwise, you will be bored with this wine.

Dynamite -- bright fruit with hints of apple. Very fragrant nose.

Menos fragrante que o de 2004, mas com maior acidez e frescor

Exotic and 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 great length and balance. This Torrontés goes perfectly with rich, saucy seafood dishes.

This rosé is deep cherry in color and made from the Malbec grape variety that's lately been thriving in Argentina's Mendoza region. Ripe, soft, and full of dark berry fruit on the palate - black cherries and red currants - this is very easy to drink. Susana Balbo and her husband have been making wine for over 25 years in Argentina and they've managed to produce a vast number of solid wines that are well worth a try.

Winemaker's Notes:

A subtle and refined torrontes, this wine is light and floral, with refreshing acidity brightening its soft, creamy texture. A good match for frieed seafood.
