Lychee, Ripe Guava, Ginger Cake, Gardenia, Candied Pineapple and papaya on the nose lead to a dry, perfumey, medium body with a perfumed finish. Nicely balanced. The fruit and floral notes hold each other in tact, neither one dominating on the nose or palate.

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.
