Wine Review: This pale golden colored Torrontes from Alamos is very good. It opens with notes of lychee, white peach and pear on the nose along with a faint hint of lime. On the palate, it is medium bodied, displays pleasant light acidity, and is mouthwatering. We described it as a nicely balanced summer sipper. The flavor profile is filled with flavors of pear, white peach and a little bit of sweet tangerine. It ends with a lovely lingering refreshing finish that drifts away nicely. We would serve this Torrontes with chicken cordon bleu. – Karen and Stuart
Winemaker Notes: Alamos Torrontes captures all of the explosive aromatic character of this Argentine grape, with lively notes of citrus and peach fruit interwoven with delicate layers of jasmine blossom and fresh herbs. Light and fresh on the palate, it finishes long and lingering with fresh, balanced acidity.
