Wine Review: This almost clear colored Torrontes opens with a fragrant white flower and pretty lychee bouquet with hints of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and delicate. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of lychee, pineapple, and lemon. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this very nice Torrontes with broiled scallops. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Our Kaiken Terroir Series Torrontes is an elegant wine with a bright greenish-gold color typical of the variety. The nose impresses with a delicious and varied aromatic expression featuring the variety's classic and characteristic citrus fruits, orange peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruits that intermingle with a fresh and delicate floral note. The palate reveals spectacular acidity that pairs with its interesting aromatic profile and tropical flavors to make this a fresh remarkably persistent wine.
