Wine Review: Torrontes wines are one of the most wonderfully aromatic wines you can find. This one from Pannotia opens with one of those very attractive starts. It’s floral and mango like bouquet is quite attractive. On the palate, this light bodied wine is round, refreshing, crisp, slightly tart, and has lemon - lime like flavors. The finish is dry and fades a little. The panel would pair this bargain wine with sushi, or salmon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pannotia’s Torrontes shows intense jasmine and rose aromas, but unlike other intensely aromatic Torrontes, this is never heavy, ponderous or sweet. Instead the wine shows citrus elements, from orange to lemon to grapefruit and a little note of green apple. This is an almost definitively aperitif-styled wine, but it’s delightful with lighter vegetarian dishes and shellfish.
