O. Fournier Torrontes Urban Uco 2013

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Pale straw-yellow. Viognier-like aromas of peach, flowers, wild herbs, mint and anise. Supple, peachy and nicely concentrated, in a rather gentle style. Just a bit blurry and warm on the back end.

Using modern technology and both local and international expertise, the Spanish Ortega Gil-Fournier family aims to produce the highest-quality wines. Grapes are planted in rocky, sandy soil on three estates at an altitude of 1,200 meters (3,940 feet), producing reds with intense color and strong tannins. Tours with an oenologist and lunch are available by appointment. There's a small charge for tasting. Read less

A tad off (TCA?) with mango and pineapple but a touch of wet cardboard. There's a decent amount of acidity with the tropical fruit but not much depth.

This is a floral white. Expect a delicate bouquet of white peaches and honeydew melon. The wine is clean and carries substance, and finishes with bright and zesty acidity. Drink this wine outside on warm days.

Unoaked, pure, fruit-forward approach with Torrontes grown in Salta leads to this really solid effort. Great citrus, elderflower and wonderfully concentrated tropical fruit (pineapple, etc). I would certainly buy again.

Moderately flavorful, dry. Not particularly appealing before dinner, better with food (anchovy/almond paste over pasta.)

This is a very good summer quaffer, with melon and tropical fruit aromas. The palate is wide, with green melon, peach, Golden Delicious apple and lychee flavors. Long on the finish.
