The most popular white wine from Argentina, the Torrontés grape is a cross of Muscat of Alexandria and the Mission Grape of Galicia. Today the variety enjoys high popularity with viticulturists, wineries and consumers in Argentina and is beginning to be exported internationally, with good reason. It makes a light, refreshing white wine with Muscat tones redolent of jasmine and orange blossoms.
With classic medium straw-yellow color, the Muscat aromas of
jasmine and honeysuckle in this wine progress into concentrated
tropical flavors of guava, apricot, kefir lime and ruby grapefruit.
Nice weight on the palate and a long and pleasing finish. Charming
and complex, this is a delightful match for delicate fish and shellfish,
seared Ahi salad, risotto and Asian-influenced cuisine.
