Two and a half glasses
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.)

The 2013 Urban Uco Torrontes is sourced from vineyards in Cafayate, in Salta, in northern Argentina at 1,800 meters above sea level and fermented in stainless steel. They try not to extract too many exotic aromas. It is vinified in Salta and has a very subtle nose of white flowers, acacia, lychee, rose petals with some attenuated Muscat aromas, delicate, elegant, with fennel and a touch of honey. The palate ends with a pleasant slightly bitter finish. This is great value Torrontes. Drink 2014–2016.
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.
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.
