undefined, null

The signature white grape of Argentina, Torrontés is unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant. 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.

Tasting Notes for Torrontes

Torrontés is a dry or off-dry white wine. 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 Food Pairings for Torrontes

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 Secrets for Torrontes

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 on the porch.
