Wine Review: This energetic and textured barrel fermented Torrontes from the Uco Valley in Argentina is a pale golden yellow color with aromas that include intense kumquat, ginger, pink grapefruit peel, wet stone, and some exotic floral notes. It has a velvety rich mouthfeel on the palate, and is fresh, round, balanced, and medium bodied with high acidity. The flavor profile is a tangerine, lime, and white peach blend along with some notes of vanilla creme, gentle oak and chalky minerality. It displays a very long and tangy finish. Serve slightly chilled and pair with grilled shrimp with mango salsa. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: A golden colored Torrontés with bright reflections. The nose is fragrant and complex, with hints of tropical fruits (especially lychee), citrus notes (such as lemon peel) and delicate floral aromas. The mouth is harmonious, with a balanced acidity that goes with some intense fruit flavors. It has a good, round body and a silky texture. Pair with fish, shellfish, and spicy, aromatic dishes from Indian, Chinese, and Thai cuisines.
