Los Crios Torrontes

Torrontes, love it or hate it? With its spectrum of floral, spice, tropical fruit, nut and apricot aromas, this torrontesgrape has the potential to become a true white wine phenomenon. Every version I have tried tastes so different from the next that sometimes it is hard to believe it is the same grape. Argentina’s flagship white variety can be subtle and elegant or really aggressive in its manifold aromas and flavors. Whatever the case, Los Crios wine series by Argentina’s premier female winemaker Susana Balbo, offers a pleasing rendition of the varietal. Lying between dry and off dry, full-bodied and ambiguous, this Torrontes is packed with flavor and refreshing acidity. Gewurtztraminer lovers will find it adorable; those who are thrilled by whites of less fruit and aromatics will definitely avoid it. Food friendly? Undoubtedly, and it may be the ultimate match for Sushi.
