Finca Las Nubes Torrontes 2011
Torrontes from Argentina, South America
The ultimate balance of intensity and lightness. The fruit is a little waxy with nice white flower notes and a dry, lingering melon finish – it's reminiscent of a lightweight wildflower honey.
International Wine Cellar - "Very pale color. Subtly complex aromas of lime peel and white flowers. Smooth and fresh, with a saline mineral tang energizing the creamy texture. Finishes chewy and persistent, with a hint of licorice."

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.
