Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition
Torrontes is the signature white wine of Argentina. A cross between Muscat of Alexandria and the Mission Grape of Galicia, Torrontés grapes typically yield a light, refreshing white wine with Muscat tones redolent of jasmine and orange blossoms.
"Very pale bright yellow. Pure, delicate, high-pitched perfume of rose petal and dusty brown spices. Brisk, tactile and quite dry but with an essentially supple texture--even a slightly glyceral character--to the flavors of grapefruit pith, lemon, flowers, spices and salty minerality. This serious yet seductive example of torrontes finishes with sneaky dusty persistence."

An amazing wine, the 2013 Colome Torrontes brings plenty of aromatics to the fore: jasmine and white peaches come right up in the wine's nose; medium bodied, some mineral in the flavors and a long, crisp finish. Ends up on the dry side and is a beautiful food wine. 91 Points Wilfred Wong

Good torrontes, citrus, floral (the usual) but nice body. There is something else I cannot quite place on the initial smell/nose, a spice of some sort. Please anyone help me out:) Whatever it is, I think it gives this a notch up on this one in the Torrontes race. Recommend.
