Ready for the Next Argentine Invasion?

Torrontes Grape

Torrontes Grape

The New York Times published an article on Torrontes from Argentina Thursday, touting it as a new up and coming grape on the market. While I’m not sure where they’ve been sleeping, I have to agree that it is one of the most opulent white wines from Argentina and has a lot of potential.

Classically, this wine has a ton of heady, floral aromas when you smell it making one’s mind dance to a big, bold zesty wine. Think honeysuckle and gardenias in a warm spring garden on the river bank and you start to get the idea. Then this wonderful little grape shouts “PSYCH” as it hits the tongue, yielding light lemon and orange zest with heavy mineralization softened by a finish of light peach.

I’m glad to see the grape getting a little respect and recognition in the mainstream press, hope you’ll link to the article and if you’re inclined to check out a few, click through to our website at Christopher’s Wine & Cheese!
