This is a delightful example of a Torrontés wine – a white grape variety originating from Argentina. If you’ve not tried this before, you’re in for a treat.
It’s an unoaked wine, with floral elderflower aromas and flavours of peach, lychee and passion fruit. It’s a really fresh, fruity, well balanced wine that is reminiscent of a well-made Sauvignon Blanc.
Tim Atkin – 90 / 100:
Susana Balbo’s ever reliable Torrontés is source from Cafayate and the Uco Valley and is a lovely expression of the grape. Aromatic, grapey and fresh, with notes of pear and stone fruit and a fresh, sappy finish. A really good introduction to Argentina’s near native white grape.
