Winemaker Notes

Beautiful pale green-yellow. On the nose, it is floral, youthful and fresh. On the palate, it has a beautiful

 structure and a great minerality with tangy acidity  and notes of fresh grapes. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

Quite a citric torrontes that has some passion fruit and lychee notes, too. There's a great interplay of fruit, yeasty character (this gives just a hint of creaminess) and crisp acidity. Quite a long, mineral finish. 50% Uco Valley and 50% Cafayate.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Críos Torrontés is grapey, spicy and floral, which is a combination of Cafayate with Mendoza. It has notions of talcum powder and some citrus and mineral notes with less tropical notes. The style is fresh with good acidity. Sixty percent of the grapes are now from Altamira, a profile that has been growing and might grow even more in the future. Nice balance in the palate.

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.
