Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes 2009
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $13.99
I love this wine - it is so surprising! The incredible aroma of flowers, reminiscent of the best grappa, makes it one white worthy of cork-sniffing (or, due to a recent change, screw-top sniffing.) Then comes the surprise - in contrast to the aroma, it is crisp, not sweet. It is a great wine to serve to "wine snobs" who think they have tasted everything. It invariably elicits a "Wow! What IS this?" I loved the 2005, but the 2009 is even better.

Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes 2008
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $15.00
This is one of my all-time favorite whites. It is not available in WV, so I was pleased to find it at Wine.com. Like all Torrontes, it has that wonderful floral aroma that is so striking when you first open the bottle. The wine is light and crisp, just a little spicy - great to pair with seafood, salads, and vegetarian main courses. Also quite tasty on its own - a great "porch-sipper." I was a little surprised that they have switched to a screw-top bottle, but it doesn't seem to affect the taste at all. I seem to recall that the 2006 was a little better than the 2008, but that could just be my memory playing tricks on me...
