Wine Review: This white gold colored wine opens with a pleasant perfume like lychee like bouquet with a hint of honey. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and round in the mouth. The flavor profile is a juicy light lime with notes of tangerine and a hint of red grapefruit and honeydew melon in the background. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. This wine has improved quite a bit since I first tried it and now I would say it is one of the best Torrontes’ that I have covered in quite a while. I would pair it with chicken satay. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 Recuerdo Torrontes is cultivated in the Argentine province of La Rioja. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its fruit intensity and lively aromatics. Bright, fresh, and full of summer, Torrontes has a clean straw color a bit like spun gold with aromatic points of lemon spritz, citrus, and tart white flowers. The mouth is filled with tropical fruit, fresh with mineral notes and clean essences. It is streamlined with fresh orange zest that rounds out with acidity and ripe pears that linger into a lush finish.
