Finca Y Bodega Carlos Pulenta Torrontés Tomero 2011

Member Review by laynictx:

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.

Since Viñedos y Bodegas Pittacum first opened for bussines, its mission has been clear: to create wines with personality, wich - without losing sight of the hallmark features of the Mencía variety and the local area and climate - bear a unique stamp. Personality, reliability and quality are the tree key words that define our commitment. The quality of a great wine inevitably depends on the excellence of the raw material. The productivity and age of the vines are key factors in achieving a fine product. The fact that different places have different soils, slopes, orientations and microclimates means that we can obtain grapes with characteristics that also differ widely. Each variety is processed separately, before being mixed in the exactly the right proportions. Our extensive knowledge and experience of wine-making in the region ensures that at our winery only the finest grapes are used for the finest wine.Our winery is located in Arganza, a town with a longstanding vine-growing and wine-making heritage, and nestled in the extraordinarily beautiful landscape of the "Bierzo Region". An area with its own inimitable accents that make it stand apart from any other wine-producing region in the Iberian Peninsula. A modern building houses everything needed for the processing of our grapes. While the casks in which we age our wines silenty sleep in a sturdy stone farmhouse Read less

Great fruity and floral nose, less sweet than expected, smooth with a relatively long finish
