A phenomenal wine. Rich yet soft, bright and crisp, yet supple. It is LOADED with lychee, which I really like and then has maybe a hint of tropical fruit in there too. If I had to point out to a fault, It may be fairly simple (The lychee) but on the whole it's one of my favorite whites. Especially for the price.

This jury is hung after the first Torrontes tasting. Maybe because of my expectations, it fell considerably short. However, I will have to have another go at this wine because this wine's popularity runs decidedly against my first impression.

Particularly complex nose for a wine in this price range. There's a ton of tropical fruit, pear, apple, banana, floral, and honey notes going on. It's really quite interesting to stick your nose in. In the mouth the wine is quite viscous and coats your mouth, but its not thick. There's a touch of sweetness to go with the good acidity and a lot of fruit tones. A bit too much ripe banana for me. Finish is a bit acidic.

Zolo is my go-to Torrontes, and the 2008 vintage doesn't disappoint. Zolo has the most complexity of any Torrontes I've tasted in this price range. Nicely balanced, and a great summer sipper!

Brilliant yellow color with marked green touches. The aromas are delicate and intense where tropical flowers and fruit are predominent. Fresh flavor, well balanced, and a long finish.

Zolo 2007 Torrontes 100% Torrontes from La Rioja. Brilliant yelow color with marked green touches. The aromas are delicate and intense at the same time, where tropical flowers and fruit are predominent. Fresh flavor, well balanced and a long pleasant finish.
