Light gold color. Aromas of peach pastry, roasted pine nuts, candied violet, menthol, and orange marmalade with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a silky, medium-length bitter melon, magnolia, bitter almond, and green tea finish with no oak flavor. An extroverted nose leads to a dry, slightly bitter palate in this food-friendly expression of Argentina’s Torrontes.

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.
