Winemaker Notes

Beautiful pale green-yellow. Delicate, scented aromas and flavors of white peach, ripe grapefruit and white flowers. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure, acidity and minerality. Plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors.

Pairs well with grilled and roasted meats, empanadas and chili.

Lots of dried lemon and green apple character. Medium body, lime and grapefruit. Crips. A blend of grapes from Mendoza and Cafayte. Screw Cap.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Críos Torrontés is a 50/50 blend of juice from Cafayate in Salta and Altamira in Valle de Uco fermented in their respective regions and then assembled in her winery in Mendoza. It's the prototype of fresh Torrontés with tension and good acidity, without overwhelming aromas, designed for the dinner table. 2016 was an interesting harvest in Cafayate, as the frost reduced yields by 50%, and in Altamira they also got lower than normal yields. The wine has great freshness and a subtle nose. Crisp and aromatic without overwhelming your senses and with good weight of fruit. This time lower yields have resulted in higher quality. Rating: 90+

Crios de Susana Balbo Crios Estate Winery Image

After 22 years of winemaking, Susana Balbo has a strong sense of what she wants from her wines. From every harvest, she creates the grandest possible wines under her Susana Balbo label. To achieve this, she makes a rigorous selection of the finest barrels prior to making her final blends, dividing them into the parents (reserve level wines) and offspring or "crios."

Wines under her Crios label display ripe fruit flavors, excellent balance and concentration, and are meant to be enjoyed in their vibrant youth. These wines are produced under Dominio del Plata's code of sustainable agriculture.

Like Susana's own crios (a boy and a girl), they are extremely lovable and fun to be around. The label features a series of three connected and overlapping hands, an image inspired by a Mayan artifact. The artifact illustrates the interconnectedness of every generation, and the irony that we will be both the parent and the offspring at different times in our lives.
