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

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."

Indeed Floral aromas llike honeysuckle and star jasmine mixed with tropical citrus notes. Delicious white fruit in the mid palate and wonderfull acidity with a lingering finish. A super food wine.

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.

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.

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

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.

The 2009 Torrontes remains one of Argentina'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.

Susana Balbo consistently delivers refined, clean torrontés 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.

Bright and tangy, with a nice mix of grapefruit rind, tangerine and chamomile notes that stay fresh on the finish.
