Brilliant silvery straw color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of lilacs, roses and orange blossoms, spiced lychee and peach, and key lime custard with a silky, tangy, fruity light body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long lemon spritzed melon and nectarine skin finish with silky, fruit tannins and no oak. A very tasting and attractive fruity, floral white with fine balance.

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.
