Wine Of The Week – Alamos Torrontes 2010
Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!
100% Torrontes grown in the northern, high-altitude Salta region of Argentina. Fermented at cool temperatures and aged in stainless steel to preserve the primary fruit aromas.
16.5/20– Jancis Robinson
…Water white. Very low key but lightly leafy nose. Fresh and zesty on the nose and nice delicate fruit handling on the palate. Only slightly chewy on the end. Well put together. Drink 2010 to 2011.
