Torrontes

Unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant ...

undefined, null

Unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant, Torrontés is regarded as the signature white grape of Argentina. In many ways it bears a striking resemblance to Muscat (and in fact is an offspring of Muscat of Alexandria), but the primary difference between the two is that Torrontés is almost always vinified to produce a decidedly dry wine. Grown extensively throughout Argentina, it performs best in the Salta region. Small amounts are also planted in neighboring Uruguay.

In the Glass

No one has ever accused Torrontés of being shy in either aroma or flavor. Notes of rose petal, geranium, stone fruit, Meyer lemon, ripe melon and orange blossom leap out of the glass, and the palate refreshes with a healthy dose of acidity and a streak of salinity. Torrontés should be consumed in its youth to highlight its vibrancy and primary fruit flavors.

Perfect Pairings

Torrontés needs no food—it is delightful on its own as an aperitif wine. However, it can be quite a pleasant pairing with Asian or Indian cuisine, especially coconut curries. Stick to lighter fare like poultry, pork or seafood in sauces that are flavorful but not heavy.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re in search of a new summer sipper, look no further than Torrontés. These wines are always inexpensive, delightfully refreshing and are best enjoyed in the sunny outdoors at a picnic, poolside or as a porch sipper.
