Winemaker's Notes

This wine shows the typical lemon-yellow color that is characteristic of Torrontes. Gardenia and fresh aromas of honeysuckle, roses and hints of lemon and grapefruit are present. On the palate, this wine is intense and well balanced with an attractive acidity and minerality.

Complex and elegant, this is the perfect match for risotto, shellfish and Asian fusion cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"The medium straw-colored 2008 Torrontés offers a floral, spicy, Muscat-like perfume leading to a ripe, smoothtextured, dry wine with excellent balance and length. Some Torrontés can be a bit heavy but this rendition is light on its feet and a great match for charcoal grilled shrimp. "
89 Points

"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. Drink now."
88 Points

"Pale, bright straw-yellow. Fresh peach, honey, mint and flowers on the nose, plus a whiff of tropical fruits. Supple but juicy, with ripe acidity."
