Brilliant straw green color. Aromas and flavors of ripe pineapple, melon, and white peach with an crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a compelling, medium-length finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A full bodied white wine packed with rich flavors and a zippy acidity!

Torrontes

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
Torrontes is a white wine from Argentina; the grape is the country's most widely planted white variety. The wines are light to medium-bodied, almost always unoaked with flavors of honey, pear, orange blossoms and lychee. They do not age well, so consume them in their youth with foods such as shellfish or lighter poultry dishes.

There is also a vine called Torrontes in Spain, but it has yet to be proven that this is the same as that in Argentina.
