Torrontes de Colomé Vino Blanco Bodega Colomé Molinos Salta 2008
The most popular white wine from Argentina, the Torrontés grape is a cross of Muscat of Alexandria and the Mission Grape of Galacia. Grown on the traditional Parral System, Colomé Torrontés is highly distinctive with its muscat character - always refreshing, never cloying. The wine exhibits a high fruit nose with muscat and tropical notes that lead to a rich mid-palate and clean, crisp finish. Serve lightly chilled. The perfect match for risotto and sea food or grilled shellfish, and of course, sushi.
This is my absolute favorite white wine. I discovered it in Memphis, TN (Joe's Wine in Midtown) and have been searching for a second bottle since. As with any wine, the setting in which I had the wine probably had an effect- but I believe it is probably a terrific wine regardless of the setting in which it is consumed.
External Reviews for Torrontes de Colomé Vino Blanco Bodega Colomé Molinos Salta
A beautiful ripe white wine from Argentina. Torrontes has its own unique qualities of floral aromas, bright and lively spice. The Wine Spectator said this 2008 from Bodegas Colome was "Bright and nicely delineated, with a mouthwatering undertow to the honeysuckle, chamomile, white peach and blanched almond notes. A hint of spice enlivens the finish."
