Food Pairings for Finca Y Bodega Carlos Pulenta Torrontés Tomero
As I explore the South American wines, I have added Torrentes to my list. A friend suggested this one, knowing my tastes. The nose starts with hints of pear and grass, then a bit of citrus adds to the flavor. Nice finish, little "dirty pear" but I like that - dirty + velvet & grounded. Made an Alaskan halibut, this wine was PERFECT with a meaty whitefish. Also had it with a spring green salad w/ green apples and feta cheese, and did very well, didn't overwhelm the feta or the apples, and left the "fatty" smooth of the feta still in your mouth. I don't know all the lingo, but hopes this review helps. At $15 or less/bottle, it is a great find.
Great fruity and floral nose, less sweet than expected, smooth with a relatively long finish
