With delicate floral aromas, this wine has fresh, lively flavors that are clean, energizing and easy to drink.
This wine pairs wonderfully with grilled fish, fresh shellfish and focaccia topped with tapenade.
"A definitive torrontes from Salta, this is perfumed in the extreme. The flavors are broad and generous, gracious and seductive, with a depth that only old vines (these nearly 50 years old) can deliver."
Wine & Spirits
"The 2011 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes was harvested via three passes through the vineyard in Cafayate and such exacting standards show in this great wine. It has a boisterous, quasi-Gewurztraminer bouquet of lemon zest, barley sugar and apricot that leaps out of the glass. The palate is well-balanced with peach and elderflower on the entry, and expresses the varietal with some style. This is an effervescent, somehow life-affirming white wine."
The Wine Advocate
Light & Crisp
My new favorite crisp white - so bright and refreshing. Great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc to change things up.
Pleasant, sweet and fruity nose. Sharp acidity hits the sides of the tongue but is welcome, not harsh. Lingers nicely on the back of the throat. Pleasing dryness.
