Wine Review: Torrontes 15 minutes of fame was just that, 15 minutes. It happened in the middle of the Malbec craze, more as Argentina's hope of creating demand for an unknown and entirely native varietal than it was a true attempt at creating an image for the varietal. Reminiscent of both Viognier and Pinot Grigio, the Colome Torrontes hit the mark on both ends. Like Viognier, this wine has notes of rose petals and apricots. And like Pinot Grigio, it does this on a thinner frame. This wine is round on the palate, displaying hints of honeyed Golden Delicious apples, and light and refreshing on the finish by means of limestone-like mouthfeel. The finish is medium in length, but it's the intrigue that has you going back for seconds. Enjoy young. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Colome Torrontes is an interpretation delicate, elegant and sophisticated of this variety, with notes floral of roses combined with aromas of citrus and a touch spicy that it converts in companion ideal for meals ethnic, as the Mexican, Peruvian and even seafood.
