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."

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.

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 1-2 years.

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.

Susana Balbo consistently delivers delicate and elegant torrontés --- a variety that is often rustic, if not astringent. This wine's seductive scent of flowers and white peaches lifts the creamy texture. It's a refreshing aperitif.

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